David Blackler's Remembrance Fleet Race - 12th January 2020
On Sunday 3 boats took to the water for David Blackler's Remembrance Fleet Race. A valued & highly respected member and Trustee of CMYC he had passed away on the Friday before.
The outright winners in the fleet race were Roshanara & Janaka who sailed a magnificent race in variable conditions!. Congratulations to them on their convincing victory on the course mapped out by Duncan as OOD.
Our Vice Commodore, Duncan, announced the winners & also informed all who attended the club that Mr Blackler had left instructions for all persons who entered the club on that Sunday to be refreshed with beverages from Blackler's Bar. His wishes were duly carried out & several glasses were raised to remember Mr Blackler.
He would have been proud of the send off & enjoyed the conviviality. As the sun was setting it appeared Mr Blackler was shining down on us once more.
