Salcombe4 – It’s Tough Here!

Not to be outdone by Ken and Joe, Rupert managed an even more spectacular prang on Tuesday, however undaunted and with the help of his support team and carbon fibre expert Phil Scott, he was on the water again  the next day.

Some pics below –

Not a great day for Tamesis members overall. Andrew in Millie was black flagged, Joe and Ken had a good race finishing 38th and Rupert and Paul eventually got round in the tricky conditions for a 52nd.

Overall rankings stand at 71, 100 and 114 respectively……….Hmmmm.

Ex Tammy members fared better –

Will and Mary Henderson had a 1st today and now rank 3rd overall.

Caroline Croft had a 5th, and ranks 13th overall

Fran Gifford as crew had a 10th and now 17th overall

David and Abigail Croft 12th on the day and 50th overall

The week has flown by as usual – one day to go.
