Summer Series Race 1 sponsored by Vincentia Newsagency and JBCYC's Club Championship 6 were combined to form the basis of our 1st Creswell Challenge competition.
Yachts were paired off to match race one another and thereby gain an outcome of either the Navy becoming victors or the JBCYC club! On this occasion, however, the Navy took the first pennant with ease.

Aqua Gem defeated Rock Hopper in an excellent match-up.
Sea Change easily took care of Tranquility with the aid of a lovely new set of sails.
Arabesque overcame a poor start to catch Friendship when a few directional errors were made.
Wahoo also beat Cougar for the same reason and Alexander left Dalliance in it's wake when Dalliance missed the start.
Taste n Try sailed beautifully to make short work of Splinter who also had a late start.
Escalation beat Aqua Luna and Isis won due to Making Waves being a DNS.

A pleasant evening of socialising was enjoyed by all at the Creswell marina despite the rain. Once again the Naval hospitality was fantastic, with particular thanks going to our host, Jim McDonald.
