Topic : Shoreham open results and pictures

Morning all. So how are those sore legs and arms today. Going to take some time to recover after this weekend!

For those that braved the conditions at Shoreham on Saturday I hope you all enjoyed the ride, some great wave riding. For all those who understandably chickened out (yes you heard me ;-) on Sunday, you can see what it was like by viewing the Sunday photo gallery on Warwick's website below. It really was full on, yet incredibly only 1 capsize in the fleet while we were out there. We certainly all came back in with smiles on...

My thanks to Alan Chaplin our OOD, and the 30-40 strong club volunteers who helped out over the weekend.

With 26 entries, including 7 home boats the top 6 were:

1st - 3626 - Glen and Olly - 2 pts
2nd - 3683 - Tom and Liam - 3 pts
3rd - 3670 - Richard and Sally - 8 pts
4th - 3666 - Chris and Tom - 8 pts
5th - 3690 - Dobbie and Fran - 10 pts
6th - 3606 - Ross and Phil - 10 pts

Glen, I'll bring your prizes along to the champs, unless you prefer at another meeting?

Regards, Ross

PS 3606 is up for sale end of the season. Great time to get a good result in ay ;-)

Seriously classy picture, Andy. One of the best since Turtle's pic of Mark & Jane in Moondance Assassin at Abersoch in 98.  Any chance of giving that another airing, Mags?

Quote of the day had to have been Alan Warren. Before the start James Warren (crewing for his gramps) was shouting over to us saying it's just like "The Perfect Storm" - Alan simply said "Put the kite up James"

What can you say ... Alan is a complete legend.

Prizes at the champs would be great.

Glad you all survived with boat in one piece!

Kind Regards

There are a couple of pics of Alan as well, covered in spray, neither the hat nor the kite anywhere to be seen!

It did look a tad breezy
