13 Aug 2010 Armband Cup
This year’s Armband Cup saw near perfect weather, with a very relaxed launch from the often-treacherous Itchenor slipway followed by a gradually building breeze. The Armbanders experienced a good range of 14 conditions, from lying on the foredeck going nowhere in the first race to full-on twin wiring by the final race. Thank you to Jeremy Pudney, Caroline Gosford and the rest of the race team, and to Robin Nott for providing the prizes.
Results,after application of the very complex handicapping system, were as follows:
|1st||GBR1501||Josie Gibson & James Fox|
|2nd and first boy||GBR1500||Hamish Chilvers & Douglas Pattison|
|3rd||GBR1520||Nikki Russell & Dave Royse|
Other teams, in no particular order: Eddie Glennie & Robin Nott, Izzy & Charlotte Fitzgerald, Megan Burrough & Ed Clay, Kat Ward & Andy Penman, Vicky & Martin Jones, Ellie Symonds Taylor & Tom Watkins, Henry Spreckley & Martin Pascal, Ed and Hugh MacLean, Phil Eltringham & Rollo Pyper
