_mg_0149Congratulations to Martin and Nick Binnendijk for winning the Yantlet race yesterday out of 50 entrants.

15 Sandhoppers were in the top 20 places and with 17 sandhoppers starting they were the largest class on the water, top marks to Peter and John in Talitrus along with John and Janet in sandpiper who showed the rest of the fleet their skills with tide flow across the thames.

As for chris and toby in Nemises (DBL) along with Apollo and Sand star… boys need to take note of tide times and race course instructions!!!

A fantastic race was had by all in glorious conditions.

    Well done Nick & Jolly nice to see a local win the Trophy.
    Obviously the reason Myself and Steve overstood the mark was due to us being told what to do by our helms Ollie and David.

    PS Where did you finish Harpo

    in front of 41 others, did anyone notice where robin foster taylor came?

    anyone know why we were scored as DNF? (not that it actually makes much difference to our position)

    Mike, Did you sail the correct course, i.e. special starboard, leigh port, yantlet starboard, leigh starboard, X starboard, shore box finish line?

    I’m not taking the bait, Harpo, check out the Breakfast Race results!

    robin you know it is time to join the biggest fleet at tbyc,
    or are you to scared of where you might come?
    get used to that positon behind us lot,
    by the way your boom proberbly got lobbed in the bin as you only bring that spitfire with the duff handicap out for trophy races, mind you, you will more than likely get a moth now as they have the biggest bandit handicap around,

    Horses for courses Harpo. Clearly it was the ‘Hoppers that were the bandits on Sunday and I will be moving for a new handicap. I reckon that 850 would be about right.
