Transom Series – 5th December 2021

Yet another cold sunny day with offshore gusty winds. Only 3 boats this time but thanks to Andy who came all the way from London to sail for the Sharpe Trophy. Neil in his Laser won the first race and the Trophy. The second was closer and after his tiller extension became detached just before the finish he just managed to hold off Steve in his RS700 to win by 14 seconds.

Neil has now an unassailable lead in the series ahead of Danny who has an unassailable 2nd. Steve in 3rd could be overtaken by Nigel if he turns up next week.

Many thanks to Lawrence and Dan in the Patrol Boat who had a freezing time in the Jeanneau, which had to be used because we ran out of slipway, and to Oshi who suffered equally in the cold on the slipway. And to Robin who managed to both run the races and buy Bob’s Laser at the same time, while staying warm and dry.
