This weekend saw a successful start to our 73rd Annual Regatta with 13 yachts and two gigs taking part. Club members images are shown below and we received a good write-up on Burnham-on-Sea.com.

Regatta Sailing

In the first two races winds were predominantly from the south with Merlin  first, Super Sapphire 2nd and Enchanta 3rd. The final result is based on the best 2 of 3 races (i.e. 1 discard) plus the pursuit result on the 22nd August.

 

A big thank you to Mike Clarke for taking on the difficult role of Race Officer, assisted by Maria & others and to Pete Wright for allowing the use of Skerries II as the committee boat and keeping all aboard fed & watered.

Regatta Rowing

Our Gigs were out on Saturday and Sunday rowing a time-trial over a fixed course. Results were:

  • Saturday JC with 5 rowers + cox and set the time to beat at 14 min 50 sec.

  • Sunday saw the newly painted Brue with full crew and Graham Wills coxing came in at an impressive 10:42.

  • JC was also out with a full crew and Tony Gore coxing, they came in a hair behind at 10:48 - a great result for a heavier boat
