Rain stopping cricket at Trent Bridge may be understandable but rain stopping sailing. With more cars leaving than arriving and much stroking of chins under grey
clouds it was debatable whether Race 2 would take place. Decisive action by OOD Keith Brereton meant the race was on and five hardy souls eventually took to
the water. For the first time ever the OOD crew out-numbered the sailors. A damp and less than exhilarating race wwas won by the newly formed team of Nick Marlow
and John Shepherd.
