Report – 1st Annual Summer Weekend Regatta – Saturday, 24th July 2021
It was a good start for an event which was delayed by Covid for a year plus. It finally happened, a chance to enjoy some socialising as a Club over a BBQ and some drinks.
The day started with a well contested pursuit race made up of 11 boats. The finish was quite exciting with Daniel Bull over taking Mike Horwitz in the last 30 seconds to take 3rd. And with seconds to go Roger Wilson’s bow crept ahead of Ellie Edwards to take 1st place.
The social began with prize giving: Roger 1st, Ellie 2nd, Daniel 3rd. The BBQ was then lit and the drinks came out. The evening ended with the three campers enjoying some whisky and putting the world to rights.
For those of you that missed it, no worries our plans are to do it again next year, but this time with Covid hopefully out of the way, we will be able to publicize and set a date earlier. And who knows maybe we will even expand it a bit and encourage more of you to join us.
