7 May Mid Thames Trophy

This event was held on the day after my daughter Abby’s wedding in Whitstable. Lyn and I were still up there on the 7th packing up all manner of things to be brought back from the reception. So I guess I have a pretty good excuse for not reporting on this event, however, hopefully someone else will.

On Saturday 7 May at 11:00 there was no wind for the Mid-Thames Trophy inter club event at Littleton SC.

The start was postponed to 12:00 when there was an amazing change to a shifty force 3 gusting 4 South wind that gave an excellent sail for the rest of the day. Littleton SC won by a very big margin, AQSC were 4th.

There was an  entry of 40 including a total of 16 visitors from Aquarius SC, Hampton SC and Desborough SC. It was very crowded at the start and around the marks.

Richard Cannon and Tony Hopkins in ST368 were 11th (better than it sounds because they were the 2nd non Littleton boat), John Panting and Frank Goodall in ST924 were 31st. Trudi Hilton came without a boat because her Comet is being repaired and she was very lucky that Adam, the OOD, offered her his wife’s Comet number 666 called Fallen Angel; she was 36th.
