Summer Regatta 2017

East Anglian Cruising Club’s Summer Regatta was staged from the club’s moorings opposite Thurne Mill at the weekend. Saturday’s race was an unusual and interesting event, giving a chance of helming to those who normally crew and also a chance for some to take the helm on different boats. 22 competing River Cruisers and Allcomers were timed over a set course but could take the marks in any order. Yachts chose their own start any time after 11am. Each yacht could compete several times so long as it had a different helm and finished by the 5pm cut-off. 47 finishes were recorded. The winner of the Cooke Cup for River Cruisers was Jo Ford in Mystery 218 in a corrected time of 38 minutes 55 seconds beating her husband Matt’s attempt by 21 seconds, a pattern which was repeated in the allcomers Ebbage Trophy with Rose Angell beating her husband Geoff’s run in Nennen.


There was a great Atmosphere on the moorings on Satuday evening with a record number of boats crammed into every available space, triple moored along the front and doubled up just about everywhere else. It all started well with Chocolate gateau, strawberries and prosecco provided by the Littles to celebrate Colin's 70th. The marquee had been erected on Friday afternoon and for the second night running the club BBQ was crammed to bursting with a couple of others pressed into service for good measure. Copious amounts of liquid refreshment were imbibed on the site and across the water at the Lion. At times like this it is to be questioned whether we really need the long coveted clubhouse. But I guess it doesn't stay mid July for ever!


After the excitement of Saturday the wind for Sunday’s conventional races had moved through 180° and was now from the south and light. This together with a strong tide made for a challenging morning race with a long slow beat against the tide out towards Acle, a wing mark towards St Benets and a run home. Just getting to the start line tacking up the narrow Thurne took skill and patience. Of the 12 starters 11 were up to the task and finished with Paul Howes on Melinda 217 first home but with Paul Stevens on Pippinjack 318 too close on his heels and winning the Roy Pike Trophy on handicap for the cruisers and Geoff Angel on Nennen the Greyhound Cup for the allcomers.

 

The wind increased and the tide turned for the afternoon race for the Fillibuster Cup, presenting a different set of challenges bringing other boats to the fore. The smaller boats benefitted most and although, as in the morning, Melinda was first home she was pipped again on handicap this time by Hilary Franzen on Martlett 122 from Pippinjack and Amaryllis, Chris Tuckett third. Nennen again won the allcomers taking the International 14 Trophy.
