Last Tango on the water!
Last race is done, with Astralita and Xcitation battling to the bitter end, Astralita seems to be unbeatable- but not quite.... Penny Fulford in Madeleine has won the Divisional Championships by one point. I think she's pretty happy- Huge congratulations from us all.
Merlin and Vixen, however both decided that going aground seemed an option for the last race, Merlin at East Head and Vixen on the Stocker bank. Gerald leaned so far over to get Vixen off quickly that everyone had to lean the other way to get him back on board- Oh well there's always next year!
Someone took a huge chunk out of East Head-
We always mention the winners, but we don't mention winners in the the other fleets. Unfortunately we can't give out their glasses at the LUS as there isn't enough time to give all the trophies plus the X fleet glasses!!
So glasses will be presented to the following boats at the Class Captains Party next year.
Autumn Trophy Pilsey fleet Merlin X160: Susie Alexander, Tina Scott, Felicity Smith
Stocker Fleet: Ibex X32: Oli Boughton
Beadle Boal Pilsey fleet Merlin X160: Susie Alexander, Tina Scott, Felicity Smith
Stocker Fleet: IbexX32: Oli Boughton
Falling Leaf Stocker Fleet: Wenda X71, Damian Ash
Huge thanks all those who have helped me get all the lovely new - and 'old' crews afloat this year. Its been another great season and with yet more X boats joining us next year the competition will only rise!
