14th February 2016 - Freelanka Trophies & Fleet Race
The sea breeze returned to Bologoda Lake & the 8 boats that came out onto the water enjoyed long beats, runs & reaches on an excellent course set by Joe Kenny. He was the only one to complete the course in under an hour with the rest of the fleet following hard on his rudder!! It was good to welcome back some sailors we haven’t seen in a while & have an age range from almost four years old to mid seventies taking part.
The CMYC would like to thank Mr Asela Kumaranathunga - Head of Sales & Marketing and Mr Sanjaya Wehalla - Channel Development Manager for their generous sponsorship and support of the Freelanka Trophies.
Mr Asela Kumaranathunga came forward to make a short speech after the racing and present the prizes.
Here are a few words from our sponsors of these trophies.
