Commodore & Buckley 2022

Commodore & Buckley – Winners!

Congratulations to everyone who took part

Sunday dawned cloudy, overcast and  threatening storms. But somehow Stephen Graham our OOD for the day managed to conjur up some sunshine for this, one of our special events.

The Commodore & Buckley sees sailors split into two fleets – the Commodore Fleet features boats with a PY < or equal to 1100, whilst the Buckley Fleet comprises boats with a PY > or equal to 1100.

With two major cups up for grabs, racing was keen. The wind was flukey, swirling around, dropping completely and reappearing unexpectedly. Sailors were focused and all eyes peeled for the best track to take across the water.

Our winners were:-

Buckley Fleet

Mark Stevens (Solo) – first place with two bullets to count

Sam Nugent (Solo) – second and first Junior

Nick Waters (Laser Radial) – third

Commodore Cup

Nathan Smith (Laser) – first place with two bullets to count

Tim & Wendy Gray (National 12) – second

Lol Hayward/ Ann Nugent (RS200) – third

Lots of fun in the bar, after the racing allowed sailors to socialise and relive their best moments from the race. A great chance to relax at the end of the weekend.

A big thank you to our race and galley teams and to everyone who joined us on the day. For the full results please click here.
