Tamesis members sailing in the Club’s Boxing Day races arrived to be greeted by bright sunshine and a force 2/3 north westerly breeze. Merlin Rockets, Lasers, a National 18, a Firefly and a Mirror, competed over an up/down river course for a selection of prizes .
In the Merlins Jon and Joanna Redding narrowly beat Jo McLaughlin and Steve Roberts, with last year’s winners Jodok and Daniel Gerber third.
Constantin Gerber won a hard fought Laser race with Ros Warwick-Haller second.
Alan Green’s lone 18 also completed the course with the Firefly and Mirror opting for an early lunch in preference to the increasingly blustery conditions .
In accordance with tradition lunch from Christmas leftovers was provided by members. Competitors and spectators left refreshed by turkey slices, plum pudding, mince pies and chocolate biscuits.
