The original Mercury Macklin Cup was presented to the Commodore at the time, Dave Macklin, by the Mercury Class Association for Chew hosting their championships. Originally for over 45s, it has been added to over the years to the current set of trophies. The Watts Junior trophy was presented by Cyril Watts, who ran a chandlery at the club and the Melvin Trophy by Herman Watson who sailed a Lark with his sons, little more is known about the latter.

Anniversary Cup.....probably speaks for itself ?!

Barts Bash - well done and thank you everyone!!

102 boats, £855.30 collected on the day, donations on line take the total to £1618!!

All the Chew results are on the website under the sailing / racing tab.

Special thanks to all the race and duty team, Jeff and Jim for controlling parking, Chris Goldhawk for sorting the results on the day and Miles for organising the raffle, buoy race, treasure hunt, paper boat making etc!

From Miles, "One last plug, if you want to buy the Bart’s Bash merchandise, this is online at (Wave donate to the Foundation for all sales) and of course it’s never too late for anyone else who wants to donate either individually or on CVLSC’s own Just Giving page .  The results for the overall race continue to be processed and these and the global highlights videos will hopefully soon be available on"
