Just a quick note to say thanks for the writeup, and a really good event.
It was great to see so many people turning up in ACs, just boat after boat after boat.... and the racing was great, although the wind was about as fickle as possible. I am really looking forward to the vintage / 4 plank event later in the year.
I do have to comment on Tom White's performance. it's only the 2nd open he has been to in his 12, a ken goddard made china doll, he is only 17 with a young crew. The first was the inlands last year.  To manage a race win and a 4th overall when he had never sailed on a river at all before is amazing. Shows that we do have at least some youngsters up and coming in the class to be nurtured and encouraged.
and thanks to sam from trent for lending me his boat and crewing abilities on the day.
Kevin.

Great write up! Ah, TVSC is a fantastic club and I enjoyed my visit last year. Apologies for non-attendance to this event when I could have swelled your numbers to twenty.
We had agreat time at Annandale too, but think there might have been something in the water, cos we brought back wretched colds which linger still.
