The 3rd December 2017 saw the hardy southwest sailors descend on Paignton Sailing Club for their Christmas Cracker pursuit race. This event was also round 4 of the Sailing Southwest Winter Series. Stacey Bray, D-Zero newcomer was flying the flag for the class with the other Southwest D-Zero sailors electing to stay at home.

The event was in the format of a 2 hour pursuit race held on a P course out in Tor Bay. At the finish Stacey was a respectable 15th just a couple of places behind Greg Bartlett who placed 4th at the 2017 Nationals in a borrowed boat.

This result leaves Stacey 6th overall in the Sailing Southwest winter Series standings at the time of writing.
