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:-
Mark Stevens (Solo) – first place with two bullets to count
Sam Nugent (Solo) – second and first Junior
Nick Waters (Laser Radial) – third
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.
