This years Foyle Festival Cup was won by Ken and Davy L in a close battle with James P H and Alan T. George G almost gave them all a fright in his Solo! Last years cup was blown out so we have missed a year. Ken and Davy L also won in 2016 so they retain the trophy. Well sailed Gents! Well sailed also to Ciaran and Eva M. They are getting better every time they go out. Thanks to Liam H as rescue coxswain and Peter F as OD.

Series I: R7+R8

Four boats racing today, the last Wednesday evening sail of the season. Anton H launched his new Laser this evening. It clearly took a bit of getting used to, he missed the toe straps and fell out having just passed Bill J. Bill J made a kind comment as he sailed by. He then got blown over in the second race in a strong F2 gust (strange but true). Other than that it was a great day sailing.

05/09/18 was also the last wed evening sailing for 2018. Just Saturdays from here on in. See you all next for mid week sailing again next year.

Series I was concluded tonight. Congratulations to James P H and Alan T in first, Ken and Davy L in second, Bill J and Joe McC in third place.

Series I: R5+R6
George G once again sailing very well in his Solo. Anton H also went well today in the club Laser.
