Judges Reports - Section B

"Great Entry for Section B. All of a high quality, some didn't quite make it today. The underwater retrieve and the swim seems to be the stumbling block, but most of them were very close. Keep trying.

Thanks to the WNAG team for a lovely test and thanks to Kay, my co-judge."

Karen Thompson


"Thanks SNC for inviting me to judge and a special thanks to Nicola and WNAG for such a great weekend. We had a large entry of great quality and potential today, unfortunately not all passed, with yet again the main stumbling block being the underwater retrieve and the controlled swim.

Well done to those who passed today. Those that didn't make it today keep working at it, one day it will 'click'. I look forward to seeing you all in the higher levels in the near future.

Thanks you stewards and helmsman, without you we couldn't do it, and thanks to my co-judge Karen."
