Last Saturday, 25th June, the club organized a Six Hour Endurance Event & Social to encourage club sailors of all abilities to join TEAM Budworth at this year’s 50th 24Hr West Lanc’s Endurance event.
Some near perfect sailing conditions greeted the thirty plus sailors who gathered on the front lawn at 10am to be briefed on the circular course around the outside of all the marks of the mere (bar E & F) to best mimic the race track on Southport marine lake.
In glorious sunshine each of the five evenly matched teams of six sailors started on the gun at 11am and sailed for two laps of the course taking just over twenty minutes before a compulsory changeover on the Snipe jetty.
This fun participation event was meticulously scrutinised by the scorers Marie Guess and Linda Smith and with appropriate penalties being imposed by Mike Guess and John Smith on any boat that looked inappropriately getting too far ahead.
As the finishing gun sounded on the dot of 5pm all that was left to say was a big thank you to all of the competitors, team captains, scores, race officials for a great day’s fun event.
