Northern Tripartite 26/06/2011

52 boats took part in the biggest ever northern tripartite event with 33 visiting boats – Sutton-in-Ashfield brought an impressive 16

boats, Swarkestone 11, Girton 6 with Attenborough having 19 entries and hopefully our treasurer will be happy with the bar takings. The event was held in light southerly winds under a baking sky

with many a sailor sporting red bodies afterwards.

After a few poor years Attenborough won the club trophy with 71 points from Sutton-in-Ashfield on 166 and Swarkestone on 175 and in

each race Attenbourgh had their five qualifying boats in the top 10 so quite an achievement.

The individual event was won jointly by Tim Hand and Caz Scott of Sutton and Duncan and Zelia Adams from Attenboroug with Alan Bishop

of Girton Third and John Hainsworth of Swarkestone 4th; equal 5th were Roger Day, Kevin Milton and Mike Pritchard.

Thanks to Brian Dennis for being OOD setting good start lines and courses. Thanks also to all the other people who made this happen,

Malcolm, Julie, Gillian, Louise, James, Olivia, Derek, Linda, Don, Paul, Roger, Mike, Brendan. a large number of photos were taken by Olivia Rust and Don Bishop

and these should appear on the web site in next few days.
