Last Sunday sailors of all ages competed in the Midsummer Special Regatta, held at Island Barn Reservoir Sailing Club in Molesey. With trophies for Juniors, Masters and Veterans and an Open category for those who didn't fit in to the other three, all generations took to the water for some close racing in the decent South Westerly breeze. The format for the Veterans (over 50's) part of the event meant that individuals were given a benefit to their handicap depending on their age, although such was the skill of some of the more experienced club members, this was hardly necessary.

There was a mixed fleet of 24 boats including Lasers, Solos, Toppers and various double-handed dinghies. All competitors started together and raced in a single fleet for both races making the start line exiting and giving the race officers quite a job to sort out the results on handicap.

Frank Beanland (80) showed the younger generation how it is done and won the Veterans and came 2nd overall in the Open category. Peter Cottrell won the over 70's prize and John Magrath the over 60's prize. Peter Curtis, sailing with his son James, won the Masters and the Open categories. Dicken Maclean took the Junior prize.

The event was finished off with a high quality buffet lunch enjoyed by all. The competitors ranged in age from 11 to 80, with both the youngest and the oldest winning prizes. Sailing once again proved itself to be a sport for all the generations.
