Whombaff Trophy – this Sunday.

Lee keeps close cover on Alsion.

Lee keeps close cover on Alsion.

This Sunday sees the start of the Whombaff Trophy mini-series.  This inter fleet team racing event was so popular last year that it has been extended and will take place 3 times through the year.  We plan to kick off at 10:30am at the WKSC end of the lake and sail for 2 or 3 hours depending on the number of teams competeing.  Traditionally each fleet at the club will enter one or more teams into the battle but any team of three is welcome.  If you do not have a team lined up then just come down and we will pull together some impromputu teams.  It really is great fun and attracts a wide range of abilities so wether you are experiencd in a Laser Pico or not come on down and join in.  If you still dont fancy a sail then come and watch it is usually good for a laugh.  Ah , here is Matt right on queue …. he really loves his Pico !

Team Rescue.

Each team races against the other teams at least once then a semi-final / final is held between the top 4 teams.  Who will be victorious ?

So lets see you this Sunday at 10:30am
