Chew Juniors at Portishead Topper Open:
Five juniors from Chew made the short hop to Portishead SC for their Topper Open meeting last Sunday. The event was part of the SW Topper Travelers trophy and open to anyone with a Topper and keen to compete (see: http://www.gbrtopper.co.uk/page.php?38).
There were 22 boats from across the SW each enjoying 3 races of about 30 minutes each over a triangular course, one before lunch (burgers etc...even for the parents !) and 2, back_to_back, after.
Chew did well. Noah Sheriff won the 4.2 fleet and took home a well deserved box of chocs.
The next event in the SW is our own Open at Chew on Sun 31st August. All Chew juniors able to negotiate a triangular course should give it a go. (preceded by some SW training on Sat 30th).
Just like Parliament, the blog is going to have a short summer recess. (Well, rather shorter than our parliamentary cousins) During that time please give some thought to becoming the Rear Commodore. This is a much less demanding role than it has been and is a good way to get involved in the rumming of the Club. Send me an e-mail if you are interested. As we trundle into Autumn don't give up on sailing: it's often at it's best.
