Wyargine Cup 22 Dec 19

Report and results on the 2019 Wyargine Cup.

A great turn out of competitors for this fun day. 
It started well with Geoff Lucas competing after sailing in the 1952 Wyargine Cup in a VJ at the Club!1st race was the ‘Backwards Sprint’ (BS Race). Hilarious to see the whole fleet trying to work out how to sail backwards. We counted 5 boats that completed the short course backwards! 

BS Results;

Radial
1st Jeff Loosemore
2nd Lew Verdon

Standard
1st Chris Kelleway
2nd Lachlan Thomas
3rd Nick Alexander

The two following races were competed for the Wyargine Cup

Lachlan Thomas 4th (4+5=9)
Nick Alexander 5th (5+6=11)
Jon Adams 6th (7+7=14)
Kurt Sims 7th (8+8=16)

Best dressed skipper was easily won by Kurt Sims in a Santa outfit with beard! Kurt also dressed his boat with Xmas gear superbly though Chris Kelleway deserves a special mention with a ‘Spongebob’ hat and also well decorated boat.
Diane Sissingh clearly had the most festive boat in the Radial fleet and Lew Verdon was the best dressed skipper with a Xmas hat that survived the race.Special thanks to Fiona Ipsen for help on the race boat including spotting the bungs weren’t in as he sandshoes got soggy wet and cold!

A great day had by all, Merry Xmas!
