The summer continues and we were treated to another balmy evening. The South Southeast wind came and went but there were enough strong puffs to get the boats almost on a plane.
Turnout was hit again by people going away or paying too much attention to the weather forecast. Charlie Morgan crewed by Ben was on fire and dominated the race from the start. Tim Barr and John Adams in Merlin Indecisive crossed the finish line second, and Joe McLaughlin in his Solo crossed third – but what will the results be once the corrected times have been calculated? See below. Thanks to John Adams for producing the results.
Many thanks go to OOD Rupert Fletcher assisted by Alexey Anatskiy in the box, and Neville Upton and Paul Jamieson in the Patrol Boat.
We were treated to a great Chilli con Carne with rice and salad, followed by water melon and ice cream for supper. Many thanks to Chloe and Josie for doing the food, and David for running the bar.
