Sunday 9th

The final day is upon us. The flagpole has been adorned with a selection of peculiar objects, but failed to get the thumbs up from the renowned perpetrator from years gone by.

The rain held off so that tents and awnings could be taken down dry, and a moderate breeze held for the final race of the series and regatta, though the fleets were somewhat depleted, perhaps after a long celebratory final evening…

There was an impressive final array of prizes from our main sponsor The Lakes Distillery, and they were presented by the Commodore’s wife, Kirstie Somerville.

In addition to the series prizes, there are various special awards for overall performances through the week.

Paul and Jude Allen received the Dave Ovington Memorial Trophy for the best overall fast handicap boat

Mike Moore received the Miners Trophy for the best overall Bass Flying 15

Maddy White received the Endeavour Trophy for her crewing efforts throughout the week.

Izzie Hunter received the Hi Jinx Trophy for best Bass sailor under 18
… and finally that shy, retiring visitor Nigel O’Donnell gave a tear jerking vote of thanks to the Club for delivering another fantastic regatta, something that we should ‘all be proud of’
