Splashaway Cup … Peter Brewer and Beth Brewer … Kimsar… 1540
Splashaway Plaque. Nick Smith James and Ian Thomas … Penelope..75
Notley Noggin…. Peter and Beth Brewer

The Wayfarer participants had a good time and enjoyed the atmosphere of what is our club’s major open weekend of the year, when other classes, Merlin rockets, OK s and a collection of boats sailing under mixed handicap rules, and all classes compete at a similar time spaced about ten minutes apart.

The Thames A Raters are a magnificent sight and we had 11 competing, with five from UTSC and the rest from Thames SC.

Our social side did particularly well with all the evening events being well attended.

Our open weekend, as BEW, was overall a great success with beautiful weather throughout except the Tuesday afternoon when it rained nonstop for 5 hours and put a damper on our Queen’s Cup event for the Thames A Raters.”
