End of Season Regatta at Horning Sailing Club

by Holly Hancock 10 Oct 2022 10:50 BST

Horning Sailing Club ended their 2022 season at the weekend in fantastic weather, with warm sunshine and a steady breeze. Over the weekend almost 40 boats revelled in the near-perfect conditions.

Saturday afternoon took place on Hoveton Little Broad. With the first race under way, in the Reedlings, Ezra Bailey and Katie Burr in Jaws led from start to finish. Second away were the Yeomans, with Paul and Sarah Clarke in Two C Sons finishing the length of the Broad ahead of the next boat by the finish line, with Toby Fields and Daniel Blackwell second in Tanskey, who would go on to win the next race.

The Rebels saw Kevin and Jo Edwards in Rebel Maid lead to begin with, before being overtaken by Peter Brown (crewed by Catharine, Joe & Ellie Brown), and on the second lap Rebel Maid (Kevin Edwards/Jo Edwards), Rebel Jade (Amanda Barnes/Gary Wright) and Rebel (Kim West/Dawn Docking) were all incredibly close.

The second race was also close, particularly amongst the Yare & Bures and dinghies - leaving the competition wide open for Sunday's racing. Amongst the Cruisers, Mike and Sally Reilly sailing Cygnet took a win over Peter and Mandi Goshawk's Grayling, and after another win on Sunday, the End of Season Cruiser Trophy.

Sunday morning saw the turnouts increase, with the breeze starting gently and building throughout the day. With large numbers on the water, getting caught in the fleets could prove costly, with results mixed from the previous day. The Reedlings were very close in the first race, with Ezra Bailey and Katie Burr in Jaws just ahead of Kevin Saunders and Phil Logsdon in Cockatrice.

The second race saw Cockatrice leading on the final stretch before taking the wrong course, enabling Jaws to take the win. A win in the final race made it a clean sweep for Jaws, winning not only the Parson Dyke Quaich for first Reedling, but 1st Overall for the End of Season Trophy, winning across all fleets on handicap.

The Yeoman fleet saw Geoff and Michael Stubbs in Tara take several wins, with strong results also from the Club's female contingent, with Caroline Johnson and Pauline Bourke counting a second and third place, winning the Ladies Trophy for first female helm, and similarly solid results from Izzy Barham-Brown crewed by Robert Barham-Brown.

With Saturday's results counting too, a consistently strong performance from Toby Fields in Tanskey resulted in him winning the Dydlers Mill Cup for 1st Yeoman, and the Koh I Noor Challenge Tankard for 2nd Overall.

Competition was particularly fierce in the Rebels and Yares & Bures, with both seeing good turnouts. First Rebel and 3rd Overall was Kevin Edwards and Tim Wildman in Rebel Maid, winning both the Chieftain Trophy and Gage Memorial Cup, whilst in the Yare & Bures, 1st Overall and winning the Martin Dugdale Memorial Trophy was Alastair Fields crewed by Kevin Blackwell in Rosy Wave, with both Liz Goodyear sailing with Lorraine Street (Chalkhill Blue) and Clive Gardner and Hilary James (Hairstreak) both counting a win on Sunday.

The dinghy fleet, sailing Lasers and Splashes, enjoyed the conditions, with plenty of hiking out and capsizes in the Autumn sunshine. 1st Overall and winning the Bure Trophy in the Allcomers B Fleet was Chris Bolton sailing his Laser, despite strong competition from the whole fleet. Anya Gittins won the Allcomers C Last Trophy sailing her Topper, with close sailing from the remainder of the fleet - Abbey Penny, Jasmine Herring, Lily Herring and Charlie Gould.

In line with tradition, the canon is fired as the last boat finishes, which signifies the end of the season's sailing, this year sounding as Julian Mander crossed the line in his Splash, to huge cheers from those watching from the Clubhouse - a fitting end to the season as this young sailor has progressed in leaps and bounds.

End of Season Winners:

1st Overall (End of Season Trophy) and 1st Reedling (Parsons Dyke Quaich) - Jaws - Ezra Bailey
2nd Overall (Koh I Noor Challenge Tankard) and 1st Yeoman (Dydlers Mill Cup) - Tanskey - Toby Fields

1st Allcomers B (Bure Trophy) - Laser - Chris Bolton
1st Allcomers C (Last Trophy) - Elmo - Anya Gittins
1st River Cruiser (End of Season Cruiser Trophy) - Cygnet - Michael Reilly
