We had two fantastic days of racing at Shoreham SC over the Easter weekend and welcomed visitors from around the country who, with a strong home fleet meant we had 36 competitors across the two days, including eleven Merlin Rockets (which might explain why the black flag came out!).
Winners of the Easter cup (for Shoreham SC boats) were William Warren and Mark Oakey, although the winners of the weekend were Simon and Ally Potts, who had travelled down from Burghfield SC, with Alex Jackson (Hampton SC) and Will Carroll in third.
Race wins went to Simon and Ally, William and Mark, Chris Gould (Midland SC) and Chris Kilsby (Thames SC) and Caroline Croft (Blithfield SC) and Pippa Taylor (Thames SC). In the medium handicap the first three boats overall were Bill and Lisa/Emma Whitney in their Wayfarer, John Shelton in his Laser and Ian O’Dell and Tim Richardson in their Enterprise.
Sunday was also a great day for the Adur Sailing Club who had their full compliment of boats on the water training our future Olympians.
Thanks as always to the personnel that made this all possible – Gordon and Jackie Roberts, Richard Bramley, Alan and Jason Hardy, Adrian and Chas and Mandy Hammond, and on the shore Chris and Rita Lintern, Lisa Whitney and Martin Walker.
