TRAFALGAR TROPHY SERIES  2017

 

A total of  SIX  rounds will be sailed, with SIX races being sailed EACH week, best FOUR  rounds to count.    The same model yacht must be sailed in each round.  

ROUND ONE

Early morning mist soon gave way to hot Autumn sunshine as five skippers competed in the first round of the 2017 Trafalgar Trophy.  Due to a very slight breeze, mainly on the podium side of the pond, a short figure of eight course was set, starting at mark 1 and on through marks 5, 7, 3 and back to 1 finishing at 8. Races were again restricted to 1 lap but this resulted in some quite close finishes with a mixture of winners, and proved to be an entertaining and enjoyable day.  
Brian managed to win two races and although he didn't have it all his own way today, he still managed to take the honours once again, with Roger second and Paul on equal points, third.  
 

REPORT FROM YOUR NEW CAPTAIN

The first threes race meetings of the Trafalgar Trophy Series have now been completed, and were fairly uneventful, with the exception of the second round when it was blowing a gale so all competitors had to use the second suit sails, with the exception of poor Phil Parsons who had not brought them with him, I bet he wished he had though.

As you can see from the results, we are experimenting with a new scoring system as opposed to the HMS as used by the MYA. The main reason for the change is the number of skippers taking part in the Tuesday races can now be anywhere from two to ten, plus instead of requiring five or more to hold a race meet.

As the new Yachting Skipper for this season, can I say a big thank you to Brian Hartley (You know, the bloke with all the  trophies) Paul Beardshaw and John Foster for all the help they have given me over the last week..............                      Thank You Gentlemen.
