New Year's Day 2012

This year as the Tarn wasn’t frozen we could have the annual Commodore’s Bottle Race and there was a good turnout of competitors with a good mix of boats. The wind gusts were quite strong and at first the rain held off but then it just poured down! However as you can see from the smiling faces it didn’t dampen the sailors spirits too much (more photographs are available via the Notice Board on this website).

Inside the Clubhouse jacket potatoes were cooking and the table was full of food, (all generously provided by the good turnout of members). Everyone eventually sat down and a very pleasant lunch was had by all.

Bill brought in the New Year with his bagpipe playing once again. He certainly brought in a good year for us last year, let us hope this year will be as good. Thank you Bill please don’t ever stop.

The Commodore presented ‘The Bottle’ to the race winners who were Jo and Dennis Beard sailing in their Heron.

Runners up in no particular order were; Luke in a Pico, Bill in his Solo and Helen and Howard in the National 12.

Thanks must also go to the Race Officers Glenis and Tim for organising the race and bringing the buoys in for the winter.
