Twenty one boats including visitors from Port Talbot and Thornbury took part in the Annual Sully Sailing Club Regatta on Sunday Sept 10th.
In a light north easterly breeze three races were sailed around a “b” shaped course giving everyone an opportunity to display their skills. As the races went on competition got keener, with one boat starting early in race two and having to return and re-start while in race three there were about four boats that pushed the starting line.
Results varied but with competitors able to discard their worst result, overall victory went to Carolyn and Nick from Thornbury Sailing Club sailing a Miracle, while Paul Bambridge and C. Owen from Tata Steel S.C. were second in an Osprey. Sully’s Commodore Danny Powell came third sailing a Laser. First Junior was Pietro Ruta from Sully in a Topper.
Racing was followed by an excellent barbecue and the prizegiving ceremony
