Last Week

Thursday Evening, G.W. Smith Trophy, Race 8

Getting close to the end of this year’s Series – how many will qualify and who will prevail?   John Adams’ report with the results appears in News.

Sunday   A blisteringly hot day with little wind.  A torrid time for the two N18s competing in the long-distance Claude Russell Cup race.

Fowey Regatta.  Alan Hall took part in the regatta in his Fowey River and came 8th overall.

Monday 26th August was the Summer Bank Holiday and the day of the Bank Holiday Pursuit Race.  See what happened below.

This Week  26th August to 1st  September

Thursday Evening Sailing and Supper.   G.W. Smith Trophy, Race 9 (of 9) on Thursday.  The last of this summer’s evening races and since the light fades earlier at this time of year we have brought the start times forward by 15 minutes.  Main fleet start at 7:oo, N18s at 7:02. Supper afterwards.

This Thursday is the last of the summer evening sailing & suppers.
We are offerng a chicken, new potatoes and seasonal vegetables followed by an apple and strawberry crumble.
Also this Thursday Sophie Croft is going to practise her MA final presentation on those of us who are having supper.  Should be fascinating. Would be good to support her.

If you intend to join us for supper please  contact Nicky at nickyjohnsontamesis@gmail.com.  It’s really important for Nicky to get numbers.
