Laser Thames Valley Travellers Trophy at Datchet Water: 8 October 2011

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

24 Lasers, from a variety of clubs in the area, enjoyed an action packed day of 4 races back-to-back at Datchet Water Sailing Club. Chilly winds of 15 knots stayed in all day, enough to tip the odd competitor into the drink. Competition was fierce, with Caitlin Tweedle from Maidenhead SC beating her brother Cameron to take the 4.7 first place, Tristan Becket, from DWSC in only his 2nd open since moving from a Topper into Lasers, taking the Radial crown, and In the Full Rig there was a close fought battle between David Rickard of Datchet and Steve Janering of Wembley which finally ended in Steve Janering taking the crown despite both competitors recording two 1sts and two 2nds each. Race management was slick, with only a few minutes to wait between each race – as Steve said at the award presentation, it was the best turn-round he’d ever come across
