Sailing on Sunday 17th June 2018 - OOD PJ - Tyros & Bowen Northway
PJ kindly agreed to be OOD for the day and set a course for the Tyros and Bowen Northway Trophies which comprised a series of 3 races. The winds picked up for the first race but died off through the second so a shortened course was implemented for the final race. Adam Newns sailed well as helm for the first time with his father Chris as crew. Their sailing became more competitive as the race series progressed. Great to see.
The Tyros Trophy was duly won by an ecstatic Richard Gould & Janaka with Ernst the proud winner of the Bowen Northway.
We were pleased to see 3 Opti sailors on the water & they gamely tackled the long course putting up a great battle over two races. Jehan De Silva being the eventual winner. Well done to you all and we look forward to seeing more Optis and Lasers on the water.
