We had 42 boats for the final Club Championship races of the season, in a 10-15kt southerly.
It was a somewhat eventful day, with the first attempt at Race 15 having to be abandoned mid-race at the insistence of the Port Authority, who required us to move our bottom mark further south due to an unusually large tanker that was scheduled to exit the harbour. We re-ran Race 15 and then managed to squeeze in Race 16 before sunset, making for a long day on the water. We apologise to the fleet for the disruption and for the disadvantages it may have caused to people’s positions.
In the end, the 2017/18 Club Championship series was won in the Standards by Mark Bethwaite ahead of Rod Barnes and Luke Parker, in the Radials by Jack Littlechild ahead of Martin White and Matt Knight, and in the 4.7s by Brooke Wilson ahead of Sara Brooks and Daniel Costandi. Well done to you all!
