International 14 Bull Trophy at Itchenor Sailing Club

by George Yeoman 23 Sep 16:54 BST 18-19 September 2021

On 18th/19th September, the International 14s held the Bull Trophy at Itchenor SC. Six boats took to the start line over the weekend with light changeable breezes on both days, but luckily enough for people to stretch their legs, and shifts to keep things interesting.

Saturday's winner was Archie Massey and Andy Palmer-Felgate who won all 3 races, in a day where seemingly everyone knew their place! Douglas Pattison & Mark Tait were forever the bridesmaid on their final voyage before Douglas migrates back to the Caribbean for the winter, with Andy Fitzgerald & Phil Kennard rounding out the string of podiums.

Sunday saw some fresh faces as George & Jack Yeoman stepped in where Archie and Andy Palmer-Felgate left off taking 3 bullets in a variety of conditions over the 4 short races. But the last laugh went to the overall winners of the event, Robin & Martin Pascal, as they took the line honours in front of the club in the last race.

Robin & Martin showed everyone that the old saying still rings true, you have to be in it to win it.
