Last weekend saw a little event taking place at West Kirby Sailing Club, which provided an opportunity for the winners of the RYA/UKTRA Championships, which was curtailed by snow, to be presented with their trophy. 

The photo on the left shows the West Kirby Hawks Team, winners of this prestigious trophy with club commodore John Burthem (they also won the little event for the fifth time, I understand) You can read all about that via Yachts and Yachting if you Click Here

Best Under 21 team at the little event were Magdalen College School members of the BSDRA. They finished 29th out of the 32 teams. The photo (right) is courtesy of James Unwin.

The Bank Holiday Monday saw the Surrey Spoon taking place, unfortunately, unlike the little event, they were not blessed with such good weather and after some fits of wind it was eventually decided that they could not achieve a result as the wind vanished completely.

Recently completed, is the Royal Thames Cumberland Cup. This bi-ennial 2 boat team racing event between clubs from around the world is held at Queen Mary SC using J80 keelboats. Full details can be seen if you Click Here. Royal Thames appear to be leading on 15 wins followed by New York Yacht Club with 12. They met in a first to three wins Final while Yale Corinthian and Southern YC did a best of three peti-final. I see that the host club, Royal Thames Yacht Club won the final.
