The Comet Association Championships held at SHSC 24-25th May saw 32 boats from all over the country attend with 4 boats representing the home club. The fleet encountered a variety of wind during the weekend with light and variable winds on the Saturday and more challenging conditions for the final 2 races on Sunday.

An excellent three course dinner was laid on by Nigel and Lesley Fern on Saturday evening with an after dinner talk on his days as a Merchant Navy captain by SHSC Comet sailor Peter Newton and rounded off with musical entertainment by a trio of ex SHSC sailors, John Orchard, Steve and Julie Wigley.

Ian Coppenhall from Hunts sailing club was the overall Championship winner with youth sailor Ian Stone from Maidenhead runner up. SHSC sailor Alan Bennett was the highest placed home boat in third place with SHSC’s Peter Mountford also high up the leader board in sixth place.

Thanks go to John and Yvonne Robinson for the race organisation, the members of the Comet fleet who rallied round to help and especially the hard work of Lesley Fern, Pauline Bennett and Sue Boud that enabled the weekend to be such a great event that ended on a sunny, breezy note.
