Enterprise Open 2021

Enterprise Open 19th September 2021

A day starting with next to no wind, and a heavy shower in the morning, meant difficult sailing with the first GH race having to be cut to around 40 minutes from an hour otherwise there was a distinct possibility of no finishers. The second race after lunch was slightly better, but only after a delayed start until some wind appeared. This race was run as a pursuit and all four entrants finished.

The wind picked up for the third race, although again the start was delayed as a result of the second race and conditions. However, a slight breeze remained throughout the race providing much better sailing.

The trophy and prizes were presented to the participants by the Club Hon Secretary, Phil Roberts.

Nigel Nurse took care of the signing in and initial organising before leaving to attend a funeral.

Many thanks to Neil Brinkworth, who acted as OOD for the day much to his surprise, and to Lis Ringrose and Lucy Shanahan who acted as AODs as well. Also thanks to Victor in the clubhouse looking after the food and drink.

Here are some photos of the trophy winner and other prize winners.
