Fatal Slip in Banana Stakes

The weekend finished with a pennant race around the lake. The race for the Banana Stakes, presented by former Trustee Bill Anderson, was run on a personal handicap basis. There were mixed fortunes throughout the race, firstly, Mike Moore tried his best to luff Ian Campbell off the lake – but no joy! This allowed Keith Jamieson to overtake the pair and start chasing leading F15 Paul Burnell. Although, Paul kept increasing his lead on the way to the end of the lake, Ian and Mike nibbled away at his lead on the way back – was the pressure so much that he opened up the lead by missing a mark? No Paul had just not written the course down properly – you’d think he’d have learnt after making a similar mistake in the morning race!

The winds favoured the other fleets on the return trip, and brought the whole fleet closer together. After the final results were calculated, Val and Ken Bell were declared winners of the race from Margaret Trotter and Mike Chappell.
