DWSC is currently lying 2nd overall in the GJW Sailjuice TopClub competition – and has a chance to claim the top spot with a prize of £300 provided enough Datchet boats enter the last two rounds (the Tiger Trophy on 4/5 Feb and the Oxford Blue on 18 Feb).
So far, there have been strong Datchet performances from Andrew Snell in his Supernova (currently 3rd overall), Ralph & Sophie Singleton (14th overall in RS 800), Ben Iliffe & Paddy Lewis (22nd overall in 505), and Serega Samus (50th overall in Musto Skiff), with Nick Charles contributing a 13th place at the Datchet Flyer (RS 200). Congratulations to all of them and the others that have represented DWSC so far.
With 3 club entrants in each round being needed to qualify, Andrew and Ben need more Datchet boats to join them at Rutland for the Tiger Trophy, as the Singletons and others may not be able to attend. Please give your wetsuit or drysuit a ring-out to help the club stand on the podium at the Dinghy Show. More support would also be welcome at the Oxford Blue (18 Feb) which might just help Datchet get the top spot. See the following link for the TopClub results and details on how to enter.
