Frozen Sheets and Prize Giving

Published by at 22:05 under Racing

Don’t forget the Frozen Sheets Trophy Race is on Sunday 28th December at 11:00.  Where else can you burn those excess calories off and freeze your bits off at the same time?  Peter Thompson of fame has kindly agreed to sponsor the Frozen Sheets so head up to the bar afterwards for the prize giving of this race and the Winter Series.

By the way, whoever won the Frozen Sheets last year – can we have our trophy back please?

    As “winter classics” go, our Frozen Sheets Race is becoming increasingly known. I hope the holder of John Glynn’s trophy returns it to the club in time.

    Do we have a photographer who could take some pictures of the event? Mike Cable, whom we often look to, is likely to be sailing his Spitfire.

    Preferably someone who has a camera that can up-load pictures to the website. My Brownie 127 is not really up to it.

    Funny you should mention it andrew, I’ve been trying to convice my girlfriend to come out and take a few snaps of said spitfire. If I manage to convince her it won’t be that cold, we should have a good event photographer! I’ll see what i can do.

    What a great day, it was. Force 4 easterly but perishing cold. Ann Mitchell, the commodore’s lady, Sara Higginson and her pals handed out welcome hot punch and mince pies to anybody who could hold them.

    The race itself was a triangular course. Phil Crawford the race officer kindly set undemanding reaches, thereby saving the Sprints capsize routine. That said, Peter Thompson managed to disappear over the stern of his Spitfire, whilst Chris Boshier (Contender) managed to repeatedly capsize at the gybe mark.

    The race was won by former club member, Mike Lennon. He explained that he could not resist a return because he knew we would have greater numbers than he had at Hayling Island on the previous day.

    Special mention for the other visitors, notably the Rivers family from Leigh SC. Altogether, we had 54 entries. Next race is 11th January 2009.
