Jonathan House Race on Boxing Day

Very cold and gusty but 18 boats made it to the start line - and there would have been more if the tide hadn't been so low, leaving some Squibs high and dry. Big congratulations to Will Pank in his Optimist for winning the trophy, just ahead on corrected time of Joe Drake (laser) who in turn was just ahead of Arabella Sabberton in her Laser 4.7. Bryan and Jenny Riley were 4th in their Squib. Full results are here.
