Club Championships 2011

Club Champs 2011

After a great Summer Shindig the night before, 60 of us enjoyed Lol's big breakfast relaxing in the sunshine as the summer breeze kicked in.
40+ boats then competed in the 2011 Club Championships.With the unpredicable unstable winds, our race officer Pete elected to run handicap races. So with 40 boats on the start line, a few jostles, a general recall and a timely capsize on the start line race one was underway. Grahame and Mark led the fleet, chased closely by Paul and Hazel in their 200. With the Missus Crewe in action another long start line for race 2, breeze up and down led to frustrating tactics and changing of places. Again Grahame and Mark held their lead on the water but were well beaten by Nigel/Di and Mike/Ian in their Enterprises and a group of lasers. Event over a fun prizegiving once the men's singles had finished! Gray/Mark held first with Paul/Hazel 2nd and Simon Foskett 3rd, 1st Laser and first Under 21. Chloe Felton was thrilled to win 1st optimist, 1st junior and to receive the Peter Chapman trophy as 1st slow handicap boat. Alan Bennett in 6th took first master with Debbie placed 5th taking 1st lady helm. Many thanks to all.
