Cam SC Open. A quiet day on the river


Cam Sailing Club British Moth Open for The Cam Coffee Pot Five boats from five different clubs competed in the Cam Sailing Club’s British Moth Open on Saturday 5th May.

Light variable winds prevailed during the day, but the sun shone, the temperature was hot, and a good day on the water was had by all. Toby Cooper from Broxbourne Sailing Club convincingly won the first two races, taking an early lead from the start of both, and thereby winning the Cam Coffee Pot trophy without having to start in the third race.

The remainder of the fleet had to sail in the last race to determine overall positions. Andy Matthews, last year’s winner, from Chew Valley Sailing Club, won the third race by getting an overlap on the last mark and  crossing the finishing line just ahead of Rick Benson from the home club, Cam SC

Final overall results were Toby Cooper 1st, Andy Matthews 2nd, Rick Benson 3rd, Colin Hall (Hunts SC) 4th, and Simon Hall (Maidenhead SC) 5th
