Commodore & Buckley, 28 boats make for great racing
Sunday 21st October, saw the club’s annual Commodore & Buckley Cup events. Despite the low water levels, fine sailing weather and an excellent course (thank you to Howard) made for a great day on the water.
There were three races over the day with two to count. Boats competed as follows:-
Boats with a PY of 1100 or lower compete for the Commodore Trophy.
Boats with a PY of greater than 1100 compete for the Buckley Trophy.
And the winners were …
Peter Nugent/ Charles Saunders (GP14) took first place, second went to Dee Fleming/ Katie (Mirror), third Tim Gray (Solo) and fourth Chris Biglin (Solo). Twelve boats took part in the Buckley Fleet with seven different classes represented.
Grahame Newton (Laser) took first place, second went to Sam Jones (Laser), third Lol Hayward/ Wendy Gray (RS200) and fourth Daren Fasey/ Colin Davis (Fireball). Sixteen boats took part in the Commodore Fleet with five different classes represented.
Congratulations to our Youth Trophy winner – Thomas (Optimist).
Thank you to everyone who took part on and off the water to make this another great annual event.
