Otters Triumph at Optimist National Easter Egg

»«Saturday 31st March 2018

There was great sailing and Easter eggs for all at the IOCA Optimist National Easter event at Grafham Water. This was a great Optimist national event - good clean racing, excellent venue and a wonderful atmosphere. It was also a successful event for the Otters with Ralph, Bryce, Imogen, Angus, Harry and Jemima all there. In the regatta fleet Ralph Surguy demonstrated his class by winning every race to take first prize and a massive Easter Egg. In the main fleet Jemima Cook put in a superb performance to take third place and first girl. If that was not enough there was some super close racing and great sailing by Angus Beale and Harry Courts and after a nail biting count back Angus finished second junior just ahead of Harry on the same points. With the unbeatable combination of chocolate and sailing a brilliant weekend was had by all.
