Peter and Richard Mason sailing Bambusa were convincing winners of the Trowlock Trophy last Sunday 5th November. The fleet of 18 boats enjoyed a pleasant sunny northwesterly – the course set downstream with the bottom mark being set at the lower end of Trowlock Island. This year there was a single race in the morning followed by lunch and the prize giving. Classes included Merlins, Lasers, Fireflies, National 18s, Wayfarers, Albacores, and Toppers.
OOD John Storey was ably assisted by Paul Jamieson, Jenny Finlayson, in the box and Robin Lince and Jim Hamilton in the patrol boat.
