SigneT Nationals


The 2010 SigneT Nationals were held at Bradwell in Essex. Ten boats entered including two Aquarius SigneT’s. These were ST368 (June) crewed by Richard Cannon and Keith Hatton and ST924 (Sunset) crewed by John Panting and Ken Ayres.

Despite an early change to a 9 year old orew, caused by injury to Keith, Richard proved once again that he’s a force to be reckoned with, winning four of the six races. This gave Richard his 15th (yes, fifteenth) nationals win.

ST924 came 9th, not bad for John Panting and Ken Ayres first ever Nationals. (see also article “Comments from a frustrated sailor”).

Curry Night


This was held on the evening of 11 September. It was organised by Diana Carpenter with a little help from Richard and from what we hear was a great success.

Some 31 members turned up and the curry came from ‘The Riverside’ down in Hampton. Members obviously like a bit of hot & spicy now and again.

Well done Diana, long may your Popodums stay crispy.
