The winds were somewhat more moderate for the final race of the season. There were 10 takers, although the competition was only between the Commodore and Barry Lancaster. Steve and Ruth had to get 4th or better to beat Barry, but the handicap system jumbled up all the names, and spit out the winners in a random like order!
With Steve getting a 7th, Barry’s 4th was sufficient for him to win the Winter Trophy and be first on the prize list for next year’s prize giving! Following racing, the remaining marks were taken off the water and the rescue boats packed away for the winter maintenance.
It’s worth taking your boat off site or moving it to higher ground as we regularly get floods at this time of year
