Tamesis Club

Boxing Day racing

               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.
