The main lifting takes place on the North beach and the tractor follows the concrete road past the shed and the chandlery towards the car park.

Take care in these areas and if you see or hear the tractor approaching keep well clear.

Commodores Trophy - Ladies Trophy and Parent-Child Trophy at HISC

Last Saturday (1 Oct) saw 20 teams competing for the Commodores Trophy, Ladies Trophy and Parent-Child Trophy at HISC in the club RS-Ventures . . . Eleven races were run so each team competed in two races, and the top teams progressed through to the semi finals and finals . . .

We had all youth teams, all ladies team, family teams and even some serious racing teams competing and enjoying some close racing. Fancy dress teams also added to this great fun event.

The start line was set up very close to the club, so those on the balcony could enjoy the racing and the breeze built throughout the afternoon to over 20 knots, providing some exhilarating sailing and a least a couple of capsizes.

The afternoon was rounded off with an exciting final which was lead from the first mark by Team Jameson who then took  the Commodores Trophy and the family trophy.

Judith Massey, Jackie Lytton & Victoria Payne were the victorious ladies team

 This format of racing continues to be popular, and bringing adults, youth and families together in one race event - more of this format to come next year.

Commodores Trophy Results:

1st Henry, Rupert & Lucy Jameson

2nd Frances, Nick & Kate Peters

3rd Seumas, Nicci, Angus & Poppy Kilpatrick


1st Parent & Child – Henry, Rupert & Lucy Jameson
