First in a series of 3 races for the Alton Cup - Sunday 11th August 2013.
Although wind conditions were not as fierce as the previous Sunday they still proved to be a serious challenge for the sailors who braved the waters of Bolgoda. We had regular sailors and visitors from France and the UK who did just that and all successfully completed the course designed by the OOD Thibaut who sailed with his young nephews. Sehr helmed her Commodore father, Chandima, to a fine win. Ralf & Thibaut battled for the remaining podium positions. Joseph recovered well from his capsize to beat our visitors Steve who helmed his host Paul on his maiden voyage as crew.
After the results were announced Steve kindly presented Chandima with a Burgee from the Fowey Gallants Sailing Club. This will now find a home amongst burgees from all over the world in the club's collection.
Friends and family members of all ages enjoyed the rest of the days jollity with fine food & beverages. The youngest members cooling off in a paddling pool close to the action.
