JULY CUP

A lovely sunny day and under staffed SOOD, Peter Rose set the course for what looked like a drifter but typically, after the start sequence began, the Sun did it’s work and conditions picked up nicely. 

Newton was called back at the start for being over the line; meanwhile, Andy in his Merlin ploughed ahead and looked splendid with spinnaker flying, lasers in hot pursuit.

 In the lower orders Jon mack did battle with Monica, keeping in touch until nearly the end, whatever happened on that last lap?

 Extreme sailor Steve in  his 505 was impressive, often seen heeled over in dramatic fashion before missing out buoy four and finally coming to grief near buoy X with his mast stuck fast in the mud. Peter and his one helper had to rescue the boat after the race, just as well no one else got into trouble!! 

Andy retired on what must have been the last lap to leave the field open to the usual suspects; Richard, Chris and Karen in lasers, Ian in his Supernova and Paul flying the flag for the Enterprise class.  

It really doesn’t get much better than this, an excellent sail. 

Results: 1st Richard, 2nd Chris, 3rd Ian.
