Nock Nock! (13/02/2013)

Andy Nock from Halesowen has been in touch with regard his, and his brothers', aggregate number of races completed. He explains.

"Joining in the banter of most senior league races completed I noted my own Halesowen clubmate Alistair Grant's 127 finishes. My brother Bill Nock and myself topped 250 completed senior races between us at this year's Div 1 Sandwell Valley race hosted by Tipton on 12.1.2013. Although I've completed 131 now and Bill has 121 under his belt, Bill's record is hard to beat. He's made the top 10 on 44 occasions and won 7 whilst my own best position is 5th with 7 top 10 finishes. Attached is the pre-race Div 1 photo at Coundon Park, Coventry last season on 14.1.2012 – Bill's number 265 and I'm 264. You can tell the number of races from the state of the vests.
