Quaich Challenge - 1st December 2013
We had a huge turnout. The Pipes & Drums from Scotland gave a magnificent performance. Jon & Mini had somehow managed to bring Haggis and the Chieftain of the Caledonian Society recited the - Ode To A Haggis - in brilliant style.
Despite poor performance by the wind gods Duncan lay a challenging course with some additional tight gybe marks and managed to run one of the three planned races. The intensive training Rob Moore underwent paid off and he came first on handicap and took the Quaich Challenge trophy - well done Rob! Second was Chandima and third Jeremy Bolling. There were ten boats on the water.
