FIRST CLUB EVENT GREAT SUCCESS
Under the spell of the America's Cup, the first official SCS club event was organised by Dyron and Bryan on Sunday, September 22nd, 2013: "Matchraces Sranan Style".
Boats: catamaran and 420.
A short course with start, windward/leeward and finish.
The combination of the strong current caused by a high springtide and the fluky wind resulted in many tense moments. The magnificent final race with Bryan and Romeo in the catamaran and Dyron with two rookies in the 420 was a splendid conclusion. You see them in action in the picture above. But also don't forget the ladies team Elly
and Petra, with victories in both boats they ended in the top of the end ranking.
The BBQ-ed hamburgers (by JW) were delicious. The day was a great success and everyone looks forward to the next club event.
Thanks to Mr Ramkhelawan for letting
us use his property and trailer launch - because although we are ready
to start the construction of our own jetty, we have to wait for consent
