Dec 3rd - on the water results

A gentle sail - just enough breeze to keep the fleet moving and dust the cobwebs off from last night. Guillaume and Fran decided to race test Nick P's old Merlin (Diablo) - including an unscheduled buoyancy test, which unsurprisingly put the handbrake on their progress at the front of the fleet and handed an on the water win to Thomas and Chris.

    Ranelagh SC is very much looking forward to welcoming you to the Thames at Putney for the final Thames Series event of 2016.
    This is a downriver race, which is always a lot of fun, under the bridges, making the echo noises, round a buoy and back under all the same bridges again, often resulting in a photo finish.

    £10 buys you:
    Entry fee
    Bacon rolls and tea for 2 people on arrival
    Hot lunch for two people on return to shore.

    Start time is 11.30.

    Hopefully see lots of you there.

This was particularly appropriate as while some were racing at Ranelagh, those at Alexandra Palace were eating cake and drinking Prosecco to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the class.
