REMINDER: Commodore’s Cup this Sunday, 5/5/19

Just a quick reminder that it’s the Commodore’s Cup this Sunday, 5 May 2019.

Being the Commodore’s, this is a cup race with a twist: before the first race begins, the Commodore (or highest ranking committee member present) is presented with the cup, and he then gets a 1 minute a 4 minute head start in each race (he’s in a Heron after all) before the rest of the fleet get the chance to chase him down.

Can you catch the Commodore and take his cup away?

RESULTS: Easter Egg Cup 2019

Congratulations go to Derek, who just pipped Tim to because this year’s winner of the Easter Egg Cup!

With winds of force 2-3, gusting 4, the first race was won by Derek (Comet), closely followed by Tim (Comet).

Tim came close to reversing that result in the second, leading the race for 6 laps until Derek took advantage of a change in wind direction as they neared the finishing line and, in what was very nearly a photo finish, took first place by less than half a boat length.

So the results were as follows:

  1. Derek
  2. Tim
  3. Geoff == Phil
  4. Andy
  5. Denis
  6. Jackie
