Tinker Weekend

The Tinker Class are visiting Bass again and are being blessed with champagne sailing conditions- a southerly F3-4

Club racing is a handicap for all classes for the Tinker Trophy, with a good mix of 11 boats while some sailors are taking part in the Great North run.

There may have been low numbers sailing but there seemed to be plenty of occurrences that sailors may rather forget!

  • AJ sailed the wrong course
  • Ian trawled his kite (twice), and Lezliann was close to falling off the bow
  • Ken celebrated another birthday
  • Evie’s cap blew off just before the finish, but dad Chris was determined to finish before going back to retrieve it! (Fortunately he won the race on handicap with a minute to spare)

Chris/Evie led the fleet across the finish line in both of Sunday’s races, securing a 1st and 3rd. The lighter conditions after lunch suited the GPs, with Val/Ken 1st and AJ/Sue 2nd, a position that, in conjunction with his Saturday results, earned him the Tinker Trophy, with Ian/Lezliann 2nd.
