Hampton successfully defended the Mid Thames Trophy at Desborough Sailing Club on Saturday 13th September 2014. Sailing was on an Olympic course with a triangle and sausage, the sausage being in the best wind right off the attractive club house. There were teams from the host club, Aquarius, Staines and us.
Our team was Richard Page with James in his handsome Merlin, Stuart Jenkins and Claude in Jane’s Enterprise, Chris and Michaela in their Enterprise and me with Timmy in my Enterprise. The Enterprises came first and second with a well sailed Laser by Desborough’s Rear Commodore third, fourth was the Merlin which suffered the handicap system.
The event was very well organised,sailed in great spirit and was enhanced by the beautiful Thameside setting and even had a mass wild water swim, next door on the lake. Gallery
