Big Thanks! Hurricane Nationals 2010 & Sprint Open

Published by at 16:24 under Bar,Catamarans,Catering

On behalf of the Hurricane 5.9 Association I would like to extend a big thank you to TBYC. This years Nationals was said to be the best ever, this was due to all the hard work done behind the scenes. Thank’s to Jo and the catering staff for feeding us all, many of the sailors mention how good the food was. To Gordon and Lorraine and the lovely bar staff for serving lots of drinks, I believe from Nick Elmore, the bar nearly ran out of beer. To the sailing committee, especially to Chris for sorting out the results every day. To Phil Crawford and his Race officers team, working in extremely hot conditions and setting good courses. Big thanks! Tony Clarke and the guard boat crews for your hard work, especially on the Saturday in windy conditions with lots of capsizes and masts down. To my team of event organisers, Kylie Jenkins, Wayne Miller, Pete Sherwin, Paul Palmer, Chris Hull and Andrew Hannah. Thanks for your help and support.  To all the club flag officers, Pete Thompson our Commodore and Nick Elmore, Vice commodore, thanks for support. To our prize sponsors, Hyde Sails, Spartan, AW sailboats and Towergate Mardon insurances. To the Hurricane 5.9 association committee and entrants, who made this event such good fun. Finally to Little Max Duce, who did a stirling job sorting out all the trollies and helping the sailors on the beach. Cheers Struan Wallace, Hurricane Treasurer.

    Also a big thanks to you. I think no bigger compliment can be paid than by one Hurrican team from Devon who said they very rarely sail away from their club. They said that they were glad that they had made the journey for excellent sailing and probably moe importantyl being made so welcome by EVERYONE at the club.
    Perhaps we should also listen to you when you say why bother shortening the last race for a football match!

    Hi Chris, Thanks for doing the results so quickly.

    By all accounts, it was a successful weekend. Of course, we all wanted more entries, which may have been affected by the football match.

    The bar staff and caterers excelled. The race officers were superb.
