|Twilight Race and Sausage Supper||Wed 2 Sep||Torch Trophy Race Start:1830 (HW 1550) followed by Sausage Supper at 2030||AYC Junior Regatta||Results||Three boats entered from SSC with a crew of two in each boat and they all sailed very creditably.
It was great to see the Slaughden flag flying.
Rory Dowdeswell and Aonghus Anderson in Topaz Duo (slow handicap) came 2nd in the morning series and 4th in the afternoon.
Jordan Samuels and George Simpson in Laser 2000 (fast handicap) came 1st in the morning series and 4th in the afternoon.
Finnian and Cesca Anderson in Feva (a BIG class) having broken a boom two days before the start of the regatta had cobbled together a racing boat and came 10th in the morning and 6th in the afternoon.
Very well done to them all!

The award will be presented at a ceremony to be held in London later in the year. Congratulations to Jack on this well-deserved recognition.|
|Dove Point||Sun 9 Aug|| A fabulous bright wall-to-wall sunshine-y day but up until 1000 no wind to speak of although a SW 3/4 was promised.
By 1100 the wind had filled in as promised and 11 dinghies were on the start line.
Rob Tindall and Will Webb in the Support Boat started the race with a fog horn!
Lizzie and Stanley Clark (OOD), aided by Dawn Samuels, awaited the contestant's arrival at Dove Point at anchor in SeaLark.
Despite being a beat until the north point of Havergate Island was rounded,
the fleet made excellent time with the first dinghy over the line in only 1 hour and 12 minutes!!!
After the Portsmouth Yardstick was applied the results were as follows:
1st Jessica Palin in Agogo
2nd Peter and Jordan Samuels in Blue John
3rd Nigel and Pam Hemming in Scud
There were 38 in all at the picnic and many swam in the sea or river before a really great sail home. Many thanks to Rob, Will and Dawn for their help. Photos are now in the photo gallery.
