Intercontinental Trophy - 21-DEC-1014
On Sunday we sailed for the Intercontinental Trophy. An annual event with special rules decided many years ago. Hans was the OOD and on request by the Managing Committee he had invited Mr. Mano Gunasekera - the Director of Sales & Marketing of the Kingsbury Hotel to be present and become familiar with the event to see if this annual regatta can be changed to the Kingsbury Trophy.
Intercontinental hotel has not been present in Sri Lanka for some years now and therefore no sponsor ship.
We had already informed Mano that only a small crowd would be present. However we had 6 boats and changed rules for the day to a fleet race with BHC and PHC to apply and also allowed single handed sailing for this particular race.
Ernst in his laser was the Winner with Thibaut as runner up.
