Lipton Cup – WSC Hosting Success
The Lipton Cup was held on the weekend of Saturday 16 & Sunday 17 November 2019. It was fantastic that our Club could once again participate in jointly hosting the OTB division this year.
It was also fantastic that our sailors, not only participated, but won in their divisions. I wish to thank Graham Taylor for stepping up and running our efforts, along with Michael Lambiris as scorer and the fantastic support of the race rescue team. To our Club’s credit, we managed the racing for 66 boats over 6 races on the weekend. This will grow interest in sailing at our Club and develop all our race management skills, and mixed fleet sailing skills with other Clubs.
