5th Saga Trophy Race, Thursday 30th May

The last of the May 2024 Saga Trophy races attracted an entry of 9 boats with a variety of classes, 1 Merlin, 4 ILCA7s, 2 Solos, a Topper and a N18.

For a Thursday evening, the wind seemed to reasonably good, both in direction and strength, allowing Chris Taggart the OOD to set K course with a beat downstream and a reach/run upstream.

From the start, Andy and Tom Harris in the Merlin led, a position they held to the finish. However behind him, and not far behind was a good battle between Tim Medcalf in his Solo and Matt P-J in his ILCA7, a battle eventually won by Tim, with Charles Fox and Robert Blakebrough in the N18 crossing the finishing line in 4th, so the first 4 places held by different classes.

The results were slightly different once the Sailwave software had applied the handicaps, with Tim 1st, Matt P-J 2nd and Andy and Tom 3rd. In 4th place and sailing very well indeed was Arthur P-J in his Topper.

The overall results are still to early to call but Tim's run of good results is setting a target for the others.

Thanks to the OOD, Chris Taggart assisted by Tim Ginn, Ken Duffell and Joe Woods.

Jean Michel assisted by Alfie were on hand to round the evening off with a great meal and drinks of your choice to accompany it.
