What a refreshing end to an otherwise horrid year. Our Annual Christmas Pudding Race was held in glorious Sunshine and steady winds. Crews took to the water and enjoyed some excellent class racing. 8 Comets of various classes, shared the water with a Laser, Laser 2000 and a Mirror.
Overall Winners and Christmas Pudding Champions were Martin and Lynn Harland in a Trio. All competitors were just happy to be out enjoying the freedom of the Reservoir.
Members are warmly invited to take part in our final race of the season, now that we shall be able to sail again after the lock down II. Please let our membership team know that you intend to sail and also book in as normal via our online booking system. Please remember that all COVID restrictions are still firmly in place and you will be required to adhere to all social distancing and COVID cleaning rules etc. That said, let’s Push the Boats out one last time in 2020 with our customary Christmas Pudding Race. (We don’t race the puddings themselves, and no pudding is harmed in the making of this event!!)
This year, we are making a special effort to bring some cheer into an otherwise dreadful year, so if you wish to wear a christmas hat, put a bit of tinsel on your boat or anything else to help you get into the Christmas Spirit, please do! Don’t forget to let us know if you are attending so we can organise Christmas Puds, see you on the 6th Dec !!
