Pitsford Rally - June 6th-7th

This was the fifth Pitsford Rally and the fourth featuring Robbie’s Race, in memory of that much admired DA member, Robbie Henderson. This time, racing conditions were perfect with the wind ranging from about 12 to 20 knots and nine boats battling it out. The RYA charity Sailability provided the safety Rib, a huge asset. Despite a cunning handicap system, the first two boats to cross the line were the same as last year, with precisely one minute between them. Next year obviously calls for more brutal handicapping. Be there!

Results of the 2012 Robbie’s Race:

Alex Haig, “Deben Lugger”
John Sheldrake, Driver “Mantra”
Bruce Hill, Dabber, “Mairi Bhisa.”
Sailability “Serendipity”
Steve Ellis, Essex smacks boat “Pilgrim”
Tony Browne, Lugger “Fiddler’s Green”
John Boileau, Coaster “Windsong”
