Vice-Captain Matt Salt worked hard to get an excellent turnout for the Visitors Race, with a favourable forecast of glorious sunshine, 8-10kts from the SW and temperatures warm enough to leave the Musto BR1s and Dubarrys shoreside.
Unfortunately the breeze slowly died and racing was rather short. The lack of breeze did work in our favour for the off-water socialising, Portsmouth Sailing Club was full of thirsty sailors.
The Victory Class have many trophies allocated to specific races, events or series and the McKay Painting is awarded to the winner of the Visitors Race.
The social committee organised pizzas from local pizzeria Circolo plus a delicious coffee and walnut cake made by MC.
The Visitors were-
Z54 Miles Linnington - Linnington buoy sponsor
Z68 Robin Townsend - Portsmouth Sailing Club buoy sponsor
Z70 Hebe Hemming - UPSC
Z74 Gareth Peters and Munch (not visitors)
Z76 Joe Speare - Haslar marina
Z77 Jeremy Miles
Z79 Dick batt - Class sailmaker
