TBYC Has New Laser Pico National Champion

Published by at 12:35 under Monohulls,Nationals,Racing

Congratulation to Alex Farrell on winning the Pico Nationals 2009. Alex won the National Championship Trophy and the top place Under 15 Trophy.

Chris Clark came 3rd sailing with new cadet member Maddie Shields taking the Designers Trophy for the first Adult/Cadet combination.

The first boat with a combined age of 21 years or under, and taking the Isle of Wight Trophy was Alex Warrington and Teddy Elmore.

With a 56 boat turnout this has firmly established TBYC as the best club to race your Pico with visiting boats from Wales to the Isle of Wight.

Thanks to Simon Bown for his work behind the scenes with preparation, to the Race Officer team and the Rescue Boat helms & crew.

Finally thanks to LaserPerformance for the great prizes and help throughout the event.

    Well done Alex! A great result and deserved win after all those hours spent sailing your Pico over the last few years, that have now paid off… I’m sure you will be an inspiration to our Cadets to get out there and get racing! – Well done!!

    Well done Alex, Well worth a celebratory soaking!! from Martyn & Tally.

    But if your looking for revenge it was Spratty’s idea.

    Top Banana Alex well done mate. And as Martyn said it was my idea to soak you, but imagine how good it would have been if we sail on champagne not salt water.

    Well done everybody in the Pico class. The record attendance of Thorpe Bay boats must surely “top” the record set by the Sandhoppers last year.

    Well done everyone in the Pico class. The record attendance of Thorpe Bay Picos must surely “top” the record set by the Sandhoppers in 2008.
