Euro Regatta took place on Sunday 9th September with Ernst as OOD. We were very fortunate in that Mr Olaf Heidelbach, his wife & son came to the club from the Delegation of the European Union to Sri Lanka and The Maldives. They brought with them many prizes for the sailors to win.
There were two fleets on the water as the Optimists put on a great show with 6 boats on the water before heading off to Trincomalee for ocean training.
The second fleet comprised 6 GP14s, 2 lasers and a Topcat K4X classic.
The wind was strong and shifty and soon had the fleet spread out. Richard & Janaka were first over the line but unfortunately didn't finish on the course IDM to port so had to be disqualified after all their efforts. Better luck next time.
Jehan de Silva won in his Optimist and the Euro Regatta winners were Rohithe & Rajitha. It was lovely to see so many boats on the water.
After the multitude of prizes were awarded by Olaf the BBQ was lit & a lazy lunch by the lake enjoyed to which Olaf & his family accepted the invitation to join the lunch and relaxation on the lawn.
