SWALLOW NEWS - Early September 2017
Posted 7th September 2017
Ladies Medallion winner Ginny Fox flanked by "almost winners" Mimie Currie and Carol Thompson. Elizabeth Pattison was runner-up but missed the photo.
Four crews gathered for the annual 'Get your own back ' on the helms event.
All 4 were actually on the start line and no one was over. Ginny was 1st at the Windward mark slowed a little by Carolyn's windward hoist but quickly sped downwind followed by Mimie and Elizabeth.
On the 2nd beat the familiar sight of Marengo's transom dimmed as Ginny vanished in the distance never to be caught again.
The battle behind was closely fought with Mimie , Carol and Elizabeth all close together at the Leeward mark. Elizabeth hit the mark, walked it round her transom and after re-rounding took a flyer up the beat and finshed 2nd.
Report c/o Carol Thompson.

On Sunday 17th Sept we have Barts Bash, the once in the year we get to start on the same line as the XODs and Sunbeams, so fenders out and be there for the fun, and most importantly the fundraising. Its a very good cause. The start will be at 10.30, or soon after by the time the ferries are busy. The plan is for a good race followed by lunch on the club lawn with some prizes just for us. The notice of race will be published soon so look out for Quick News for that.
The 23rd/24th September is the Bob Massey Trophy. Another great two day event with a good fleet expected. Details of the Club Supper on the Saturday night will be out soon. Please make the effort to eat at the club that night as its all part of the fun!
And finally. Our ISC Commodore always hangs out with the right people. Here he is with Round The World sailor Alex Thompson at the RLYC event during the Swallow Championships. Photo Lucy McGinlay
