Thursday Evening Regatta

It was a lovely sunny evening for the Thursday Evening Regatta and the warm light breeze made for a pleasant but leisurely sail.

Thanks to Richard who stood in at the last minute to volunteer for OOD and managed two races which provided two different winners.

Race one – Phil A swapped his trusted Contender for a more suitable light wind vessel in the form of a rare Harrier class dinghy. Age of boat and helm didn’t stop Phil scooping top prize with a half minute lead over Nick, getting some late practise for the forthcoming weekend, sailing his Vareo with Phantom Phil in third.

Race two – Nick managed to win by a good margin with Harrier Phil second, just ahead of Richard, sailing his Vareo.

Once ashore everyone was treated to a piece of the ‘James’ family recipe lemon drizzle cake baked fresh that evening.
