The Annual Prize-giving followed the popular Drinks Party and went like clockwork with over 60 trophies presented by our President, Richard Roberts, to Juniors, Youth, Cruisers, 10 Footers and many other categories of sailors and dinghy racers. Jonnie Howard, the Commodore read out all the details about the criteria for winning each trophy and the name of the person(s) who and when they originally donated each trophy, some dating back to the 19th Century, and have many names engraved on them of members who raced at the Club many years ago.
The evening continued with the Laying-Up Supper, much enjoyed by all who attended and many thanks go to all who organized the event and set up the tables and chairs etc. and afterwards packed them all away again!
The evening was a great success rounding off a very good season’s sailing in 2017. The final series, Frostbite, will end with the traditional hot lunch in the Clubhouse when the last Trophy, The Frostbite Cup, will be presented.
Time then to wash and pack the boats away, wash all the sails and sheets and make a note of what needs to be repaired or replaced before next season!
Have a good Winter planning all the sailing you intend to do in 2018.
