Allen Enterprise Nationals at South Caernarvonshire Yacht Club - Day 1

by Carol Ford on 8 Aug 5-11 August 2017

Most of the twenty-eight boats arrived at Abersoch on the Saturday to rig their boats and have them scrutineered. We were treated to wine and snacks at the Commodore's Reception that evening, followed by the briefing.

Sadly, Sunday turned into a very wet and windy day so the Practice race and Race one were postponed and there was no sailing. But the day was topped off very nicely with a lasagne supper in the Cove restaurant at the club.

Monday turned out to be a lovely sunny day with moderate winds and the Race Officer, Chris Hoppins, ran the first three points races without a hitch. Phil & Laura Bevan from Grafham Water SC won the 1st race and Jeremy & Rebecca Stephens from Penzance SC won both the 2nd and 3rd races.

The prize giving for the day was held in The Vaynol pub in Abersoch where the Landlord, Ben, put on a lovely buffet before the karaoke entertainment and rounds of various shots. Rooster kindly provided jib sheets for the last finisher in each race and SpeedSix provided race day prizes for races 2 and 3 including two buoyancy aids and plenty of their go-faster hull coating.

After the first three races, Jeremy & Rebecca are lying first, Phil Ford & Jane Humpage from Bristol Corinthian YC are second and Phil & Laura are third.
