Last Week

Thursday Evening, G.W. Smith Trophy, Race 6

A reasonably steady breeze set in which held up to the end of the race.  Tim Medcalf romped off into the lead again but did he do enough?   John Adams’ report with the results appears in News.

Saturday  Was the occasion of the first excursion of the RYA Feva fleet.  The hand-over went well.

Sunday   The residue of the severe wind of Saturday, which had caused the first day of Cowes Week to be cancelled for the first time in 60 years, was still in evidence and there was lively racing by a select few for the Summer Series 14 and 15 races.  The Handicap race was run as usual but, rather than have the Series 15 races in the afternoon, the OOD elected to have both races (14 and 15) back-to-back before lunch.

Monday 26th August is the Summer Bank Holiday and the usual Handicap race will be held – first Class start at 11:00.


Salcombe Gin Regatta

Tamesis has three representatives competing in the Laser Radial class, Harry Harris, Ben Ramage and Constantin Gerber.  The early results show promise that they are getting to grips with the fleet and all have recorded results of 5th of 13, or better, in the first two races.  We wish them success during the rest of the regatta.

Tree problem

The old cherry tree next to the balcony is not very well and it has one completely dead branch which will have to be removed.  It is hoped that the tree will survive a few more years but its prognosis is not encouraging.
