Sprint 15 Nationals Round up

Published by at 11:20 am under Members,Sprint 15's

Another event that as a club we have demonstrated that we welcome these events and that we support them well. We have had many excellent comments from sailors that were visiting and this would not have been possible without our members. This includes the Sprint 15 sailors that entered but also worked hard until they were on the water, all those that volunteered and went on a Rota (some supplying boats), those members and cadets that came down from the club house at short notice to help on the beach (Rupert Snow is memorable “Aim at me”), the staff we employ (over 900 pints of beer were poured) and finally everybody that were friendly to all the visitors over the weekend.

Even though everybody does this unpaid, please remember this has brought required funds into the club in entry fees, catering and refreshments behind the bar.

There was success for Thorpe Bay out of the 83 boats sailed with the us winning the Team Event. Finley Cullender was 1st Junior, Gerald and Nathan Sverdloff was 2nd Two up. Steve Healy was 6th overall, 1st over 50 and 5th Most Improved, Gary Sverdloff was 2nd Most Improved, Keith Persin 3rd Heavyweight. The following Thorpe Bay Sailors were all in the top quarter overall Steve Healy, Andrew Wood, Chris Tillyer, Jim Bowie, Gary Sverdloff, Peter Thompson and Andrew Hannah. Although well done to everybody else. Peter Thompson without doubt showed us all up, sailing in shorts and shirt, often standing (must be his skills from the paddle boards) and being there at the front of many races.

Thank you to everybody for your time.

Paul Morgan (and Steve Healy), Sprint 15 Captains.

    We just wanted to thank you for all the hard work you and the volunteers put into making the weekend so enjoyable, it was clear that you had put a lot of thought and preparation into the event.

    Seasalter had a great time and look forward to welcoming you all to our TT on the 9-10th August. We won’t be able to match your facilities (have you seen our committee boat), but will certainly try our best to make you feel welcome.

    Thank you once again,

    Mark Hollis, SeaSalters
