Cadet Fundraising!

  • Cadets Wahey! First Monday of cadet racing with 6 boats joining in. Some of our old hands (Kizzy, Tom and Eoghan) were joined on Monday by some new faces (Orin, Thom and Johnnie). There was some very close racing all through the session. There was an upset in the second race with Orin winning the race on handicap and also managing to bring his Topper home ahead of the Lasers on the water! Fantastic photos taken by Simon Pledger. Looking forward to next week where there should be even more on the racecourse.Guy 6th May 2013
