Comet Combined Classes Open
Kingsmead SC - Saturday 30th May 2015

Kingsmead Sailing Club was delighted to host a Comet Multi Class Open greeting competitors with a sunny, warm morning with a light southwesterly wind.

By 10.30 the club was bustling with sailors and KSC helpers and by 11:00, 11 boats from 8 different clubs were fighting for the best position on the start line with wind, having picked up to a force 3, ideal for tactical racing.

After a first race with a close finish, the competitors were offered a fantastic barbecue lunch by the galley, before competing in two more races back to back.

The results were announced after a sumptious afternoon tea and presentations to John Coppenhall (Hunts SC) in first place, Ben Palmer (Baltic Wharf) in second with Henry Jaggers (Beer and a very welcome returning KSC Honorary Lifetime member) in a very close third place. Anthea Wright and Peter Coombs were the highest placed KSC members with a 9th position. Congratulations to them all.


The Winners

We would like to offer special thanks to Chris Simon (RYA) who gave up his time to oversee the whole judging process.

A big thank you to our guests for coming to join us and who seemed to enjoy the sailing, the food and to be looking forward to returning next year - we certainly hope to welcome them back! Finally thank you also to the KSC volunteers who helped run the day smoothly, they are: Irina Varivoda and Pauline Arnaud (Galley), Ron Hamilton and Alexey Sonkin (Safety Boat) and Maxim Lamare (DO & organiser of the day).
