    CMYC Shackle Weekend - 31st May & 1st June 2014

    There is the Americas Cup and then there is the CMYC Shackle! What a fantastic weekend we had. Saturday morning there were 24 Optimists battling on the lake. Some were members; others hopefully future members.

    Winner was Akhil Jayawardene

    Runner-up Jeremy De Mel

    Second runner-up Sansith Heedigala.

    In the afternoon Jeremy got four very exciting races in. A great course close to the clubhouse and a perfect South-westerly breeze. Fifteen competitive GP14 boats got some close and challenging battles and there were several lead changes throughout the day.

    On Sunday the fishing competition took place from 7-12 in the morning.

    Despite the foul Sunday weather with thunder showers passing over the Lake Jeremy managed to get one of the two races underway. Applause goes to Jeremy and his team for managing the races to top professional standards under the challenging conditions.

    Devin defended and won the Trophy assisted by Navy crew Soyza.

    Anil & Michelle fought to the last drop and came second.

    Duncan & Gail were second runner-up.

    On personal handicap we had Trevor & Sarah first.

    Amand & Anish second (their first ever GP14 race)

    Thibaut & Michele second runner-up.
