Annual Regatta Success

Challenging Conditions

It was a fanstastic annual regatta last weekend. Congratulations to all those that competed, we experienced quite challenging gusty conditions making for some exciting sailing and a range of spectacular capsizes (you know who you are!)

annual regatta

The Sailing and House committees both worked extremely hard to ensure things ran smoothly, with much support from other club members which was really appreciated. On Sunday we were also pleased to welcome into the club those that attended the St Martin’s Church Sea Sunday Service, it was all quite busy for a while. Martin Speller retained the prestigous Aurum Trophy as overall winner of the Regatta, Tom Pollard had a superb weekend finishing as top junior and second overall. It was also really pleasing to see our youngest sailors gaining some race experience as they competed for the Trophy de Paris, well done to Jack Horton who was the winner. If you haven’t seen them already I recommend checking out the photos on our face book page
