Lyons Brothers Sail to Victory at Brass Monkey 2014
20 January 2014 (151 reads)


Ullswater Yacht Club sailors Matty and James Lyons sailed their 49er to victory in the re-scheduled Brass Monkey event held at Yorkshire Dales SC on Saturday (18 January). This popular event, which is part of the Winter SailJuice Series had to be re-scheduled because of bad weather between Christmas and New Year. Shifty conditions in winds from Force 2 to 4 made the event challenging for the 80 boats taking part. Matty and James won with a 2nd and a 1st, pushing a Topper and Scorpion into 2nd and 3rd places respectively. 

Thanks to Yorkshire Dales SC. Report by Pauline Thompson. For full report/results click Read more.

Just how well will this year's Air Jordan gamma blue 11s retro do give that it's a colorway we've never seen before? We can�t exactly imagine an Air Jordan XI sitting on shelves for too terribly long, but we have a feeling they won't fly off shelves as quick as previous years'"Concord" and "Bred" releases. The sneakers will land a bit earlier than we're used to seeing them-December 21st is the due date. Stay with us after the break for extra images on the "Gamma Blue" Jordan 11 gamma blue 11s and watch for them soon at shops like Nohble.
