IC Nationals Day 4 & International Canoe Week Day 7 at Stone Sailing Club

by G Caldwell 2 Jul 2018 14:57 BST 25 June - 1 July 2018

"Wishful Beginnings" gave way to "Wild is the Wind" as the fleet stood looking at the Blackwater. "What's Really Happening?" "Where Are We Now?" results wise?

Most of the fleet. from being "The Superman" earlier on in the week, were now "Under Pressure" from the affects of the night before.

A building F4 with F5 gusts and a strong tide. With forecast to get stronger.

The P.R.O. called "Time", and the racing was cancelled for the day, the "Sound and Vision" of the abandoned flag being raised removing any "Sense of Doubt".

Prize-giving with cheese and wine - trophies for the "Heroes" and gifts for those who helped the "Boys Keep Swinging".

On behalf of the IC fleet - thank you to Stone SC who worked so hard throughout the week to make an excellent Championship... and to Mr Bowie.
