Sunny pursuits

23/24 June comprised series of fleet pursuit racing. The tradition for the series when the prizes were initially awarded was that helms, together with their crews, would sail in someone else’s boat for each race so that top helms would prove that they could do well even when sailing a shed!! However, as the investment in boats increased there was a reluctance to throw your boat into the hat for just anyone to sail. Hence the format has evolved such that the better helms have to start later than the rest. So if you see some strange results below, that’s why.

After winds faded during Saturday’s first race, leaving Commodore Miles Middleton stranded for some time, race 2 was cancelled.

In the GPs, Robin Dawson hot footed it with his new bride Rebecca from their wedding ceremony to win the first race on Sunday. I’m assured it was only the handicapping that stopped them winning the second race! However, congratulations to the happy couple. Similarly, congratulations go to Val and Ken Bell on winning their first trophy in their new boat.

Some consistent sailing by Wendy Somerville and Elaine Fairlamb, enabled them to take the Bryson Helm Trophy while son Mark Somerville took the Foxtail Trophy in the lasers.
