Mason Brothers win the Trowlock Trophy 2017

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.
