Hello Everybody

This past weekend we held our Interclub regatta, the sailors that were there enjoyed every minute of good wind, good food and good company

The bridge managed to get in 5 races on Saturday ( a few older sailors seemed to find this a bit heavy going and sat out the last one !) and 2 on Sunday so a discard was allowed.

The Juniors had three classes namely Mirror – won by Sophie x J Bailes. Optimists—won by C Hills and Tera Pro won by S Funda.

The Seniors had 4 classes which included the Gypsy’s who were sailing their Africa’s this was won by Patrick x Andrew Butler ( Yes folks they sailed a Gypsy ) Lasers — won by C Hills, Finns — won by Ralph and as these two classes had the same number of entries they both shared the
River Championship Trophy and the O class which was made up of Sprogs won by S Bailes x T Bailes. Sonnet class was  won by Tim and Meghan Jones.

ABYC won the Junior Interclub and RYC won the senior Interclub. Well done to all who sailed and a big thanks to all that helped run it.

This Sunday we will be sailing Special Trophy 1 races 3 & 4 start not before 11-00 PLEASE NOTE: this is a change from the sailing program.
