Victory for Wallasey Y C

It has now been revealed that the Wallasey team has won this year’s LYC/TSC Handicap Yachts Commodores cup which took place on Sept 29th.  Ian Ralli helming with Andy Blythe as his crew beat off 10 other teams to take line honours on the day,  sailing Neil Thomas’  Prima 38 “MAX TOO” to a clear victory, beating the second boat home “La Republique” by almost 10 minutes.  After applying the handicaps and adjusting times the Wallasey team were still nearly four and a half minutes clear of the nearest rival (this fact was not revealed until last saturday at the WYC prizegiving) .  Well done Ian and Andy!

Weather Forecasters get it wrong (again)  9/9/18

Yesterday’s  race was supposed to take place in a strong breeze – what we got was light airs which at times were insufficient to sail over the tide.  Two boats retired but the others, with dogged determination, carried on and eventually crossed the line courtesy of the flooding tide.

Whimbrel makes it back to the water  5/9/18
