The race series match those of last year, except the Pursuit series was replaced by the Sprint series, and the same trophies have been award. Everyone who were 1st, 2nd, or 3rd for Boat Handicap or Personal Handicap result in a main series receives a glass. Some glasses have also been awarded for amount of sailing.
If helm capsize or have any other incident or breakage would they please make sure it is recorded on the race sheet so it can be include in my result records. Keith Hatton has been awarded the Water Rat for 9 capsizes, all in Club Lasers.
Our Junior Sailors have been a very big asset to us and Michael Stevens receives the Young Helm Trophy; he has made very rapid progress during the year from being 7th on Personal Handicap in the Spring Series to 2nd on Boat Handicap in the Autumn Series.
A total of 73 races, including 18 Fun races, were sailed during the year; Brian Clements, Michael Stevens and Graham Thompson were extreme keen to manage to compete in 60, 59 and 55 races respectively. Bryan only missed racing on 4 of the 25 days we raced, and Michael was only one behind.
A printed report of each race entry, series results, summaries and other items are in the Race Result folder that is normally kept in the Club entrance. As the race entry reports are very compact and give virtually all the information (except intermediate lap times) on the original race entry sheets these will not be retained.
