A beautiful day sun shining and wind blowing F2-3 from the NE. We raced for the Brian Frazer Memorial Shield in combined results over race 1 + 2. Gareth and Richard G won it with ease and style. Congratulations to the lads, surely the most improved crew this year, now very much competing at the top of the fleet. Congratulations also to the organizers of the Frostbite series (Gareth G, James H and Co). Its the first frostbite series in Culmore we have had (for a long time)(ever). Delete to suit!

The next race is on the 25th. See you there.

Another great George Doherty hot toddy event. Sailing in Culmore bay, starting at the perch up to harts, down to a mark opposite George G house then over the double bouy at the power station twice round. Kevin and James L sailed very well especially after not being out much this year.

It was windy today with strong gusts. Two capsizes. In race one Bill and James J went over and recovered quickly. In race 2 Anton H and Barry McN took a swim but the boat went partially turtle and took a bit of extra effort to get her back up.
All good crack and it made the hot whiskey even more welcome.

Ken Louden won it in handsome style.

James P Hockley was sailing Alan T’s Phantom at an LFYC handicap of 1127 (the same as Alan).
Actually the handicap didnt affect the positions. It worked out that the boats are placed after the handicap calculation in the same order as they crossed the line.
