Laying Up Supper and Prizegiving
Published 21:56 on 15 Nov 2019
Members enjoyed a very convivial Laying Up Supper at the club last Saturday. It was particularly good to see a mix of cruising and racing sailors sitting together, and occasionally even talking to each other!
A number of trophies were awarded. Sean Grimes was a popular winner of the Dunicliffe Cup, awarded to a notable supporter of Club rallies and Tony and Ynskje, of yacht Antipole (pictured above), kindly presented a new trophy, to be awarded for 'heroic cruising exploits'. This trophy is three Christmas baubles that were presented to them when in Russia in a bag extolling Vladimir Putin and which has been christened 'Putin's Balls'. Following a secret vote the trophy was presented to ..- .. Tony and Ynskje! For those that are interested, Tony and Ynskje's blog detailing Antipole's voyage is well worth a read you can find it here http://blog.antipole.co.uk/
A full list of trophies awarded is here http://portsmouthsc.clubmin.net/uploads/693534/pub... but notable racing trophies went to Chris Rust (Challenge Cup for 'Traveller' events including Squib Inlands, Southern and Eastern Area Champs and the Burnham Gold Cup) and David Lloyd (Wyllie Cup for Solent events including Cowes, Portsmouth , Merrydown and Combined Harbour Regattas).
