On Sunday 3 boats took to the water for the Brown’s Shield. It was a BOD only race so Ernst teamed up with Mini and the series of three races was on. It was immediately evident that the natural sailing skills of Sarith who sailed with his wife Anna and those of single handed Rob outstripped Mini & Ernst. All three races were closely fought by Sarith & Rob. Rob winning the first. Sarith the second. It was down to the third race to decide the trophy winner so well done to Sarith & Anna for doing the needful in lively wind conditions.
The results were reversed in the fleet race when personal handicaps came in to play which meant Rob won the fleet race.
Well done to the competitive sailors.
The action on the water was followed by a barbecue on the lawn which was absolutely delightful & reminiscent of lazy afternoons on the lawn. Rob did a great job of stringing up the hammock, setting up the benches with umbrellas & manning the barbecue.
Don’t forget to come & support the Royal/Thomian Regatta on Saturday 11th August plus the CMYC Tusker 50hp powerboats will be racing on the morning of Sunday 12th August which will be followed by a fleet race. Plenty for you to come and enjoy at the club.
