Sunday 500 sailing 24/6/18.

Sunday 24th gorgeous sunny warm morning to run our 500 race which had been put back a week. Terry and Paul laid the course and we lined up at 10.30 for the start. This is a great little boat and provided some really close racing with the usual fun and banter, thrills and spills. The usual sob stories after the race, being rolled over, hitting each other, broken props and broken dreams. The results were: Race 1 Places  1st Piers, Terry, Paul, Phil & me last Race 2 Places 1st Terry, Piers, Phil, Paul & me last Race 3 Places 1st Paul, Piers, Phil, me, & Terry last Race 4 Places 1st Paul, Terry, Piers, Phil, me last again.

This was held on the grounds of Priory Farm Equestrian Centre, With the kind permission of the owners.
there were plenty of different stalls and trade stands, all different and no 2 doing or selling the same, which no doubts took some time to arrange by the organisers.
CMBC were asked to attend and to put on both a static display of boats but to also put our boats out on the lake too.
I would like to thanks all the club members who attended and all helped to put on a great show and on water demonstration throughout the day, great weather, great crew, great show. What more could you ask for. Thanks Guys !!
