Race report for Burton & Jeffrey's Trophies – 1st December 2019
Racing was almost abandoned due to lack of wind but at the last moment it made an appearance & three races back to back took place for the Burton & Jeffrey's Trophies with four boats on the water.
The start being so important clearly had everyone on edge especially in the first race where every boat was "caught in irons". If only one had managed to escape they would have been well away but that was not to be.
All the boats fought in close quarters with places being exchanged over the course of the afternoon.
Finally the results were resolved
For the Jeffrey's Trophy with personal handicap
1st place Jonquil & Simon
2nd place PJ & Richard
3rd place Capt Per & guest sailor Richard
4th place Mini & guest sailor Mark
and the Burton Trophy without personal handicap there was some shuffling of the results with
1st place PJ & Richard
2nd place Capt Per & guest sailor Richard
3rd place Mini & guest sailor Mark
4th place Jonquil & Simon
Well done to all who sailed & thank you to all the supporters on the bridge
