Final Burnham week results after another great week’s sailing with everything from zero to 30 knots and clear blue skies to torrential rain. We won the Bank Holiday Weekend overall winning the Royal Thames Yacht Club Emmett Cup which is presented at the black tie prizewinners dinner in the club in Knightsbridge in November and it is always a great evening. Over the weekend the Burnham Team Trophy was run again this year and we just won with Mantra as our team-mate. We were runners up in the Mid Week Series to Inn Spirit, winning the Watson Cup and we also won the Peter Jennings Trophy for the best IRC result for the week over 7 days without discard. Unfortunately we didn’t win the Town Cup, but were 6th, only 1 min 45 seconds from first place, so very very close – will have to try harder next year. So not a bad week in all.
