Notts County First of Year Charity Race

by David Eberlin 2 Jan 2018 07:02 GMT 1 January 2018

Notts County Sailing Club's traditional first of the year race took place on 1st January 2018, in aid of Maggie's Centres.

The Geoff Parker Memorial trophy and Phil Davies Cup are awarded at the event which this year went to Peter Gray and Rich Pepperdine from Staunton Harold and John Parr and Kim Parnham from Notts County Sailing Club.

The event attracted 44 entries, over a quarter being visitors from clubs around the east midlands the event raised over £350 (without donations in collecting tins) for the Cancer charity Maggie's Centres that provides an oasis of help and comfort for cancer sufferers in centres built in hospital grounds.

The first race started just after 11am in a light breeze which faded during the race, however the wind. increased slightly for the second race held back to back. The fast handicap got a clear start as did the slow handicap with two boats managing a port flyer. The fast handicap saw John Parr and Kim Parnham in an RS400 from Notts County lead, whilst Peter Gray and Rich Pepperdine from Staunton started stamping their authority on the slow fleet, winning both races in their GP14 by a good margin.

Steve Bishop from Girton was second over all and second in the slow fleet, whilst Nigel & Dianna Pepperdine were well up in the slow fleet coming forth overall. Also of note was Molly Hinsliff-Smith who was 8th overall in her Topper.

Thanks to all who organised and entered, the next event is the County Cooler in late February, after the Staunton Blaster on second weekend in February.
