It is with great sadness I have to announce the death of Jeffrey O'Riordan, who had been a member since 1962. His wife, Sally, was Cadet Skipper and his six children were active cadets. He kept a day boat "Puffin" at the Club for many years. Jeffrey was last at the Club for Ted Terry's funeral only a few weeks ago.
Our condolences go out to Sally and all the family.
Despite light winds and spring tides, a mixed fleet of 50 boats took to the water for the annual Dyer Cup. These ranged from Mirrors to Spitfires and included 13 Cruisers. After last year's fast race it was clear as the fleet battled against the tide making slow progress on a broad reach towards Doctor that no records were going to be set this year. The first boat to finish took over an hour to complete the course and the last took almost two and a half hours !
First Place: K6 201 - Phil Newman
Second Place: Fireball 15122 - Dave Hall
Third Place: Fireball 14905 - Charlie Stewart
First Cruiser (16th overall): Geronimo - Tommy Mills
