Steering Competition – 25th Aug 2019
On a fine Sunday morning with only a little wind we set up a course comprising 15 bouys and two large obstacles for members to compete in the Annual Steering Competition to win the Richard Graham Trophy.
The field was smaller than on some previous occasions with 8 members competing in two rounds to complete the course by avoiding hitting any buoy or obstacle in the fastest time which proved to be rather challenging in places. The only clear round and the winner was The Club Captain with his model of HMS Kirkliston.
The full results were as follows:-
|2nd||Nick Leaper||1||French Trawler|
|4th||Vaughan Jackson||3 (1.52m)||Fishing Trawler|
|5th||Steve Watling||3 (2.13m)||Launch|
|6th||Olly Chapman||3 (3.53m)||RAF Launch|
Please note that in the future we will only be holding one steering Competition per year.
