Richard Thompson was victorious by a good margin in the Swallow fleet during a vintage Cowes Week 6-13 August 2016. Sir Malcolm Green finished ahead on a tie break with Anthony Lunch/Andrew Reid for 3rd place. Robbie Gilmore, Chris Eames, and Hannah Bibby (Cambridge) finished 5th in a chartered boat – just ahead of Sam Jenkins, Eerik Toom, and Jonny Taylor (Oxford) in another chartered boat.
Graham and Julia Bailey clocked up yet another victory in their new Dragon – their previous boat was lost, along with many others, in the disastrous Cowes fire of March this year (2016).
Claire Lasko, with Honor Fell in the crew, was 3rd in the J70 class.
Congratulations to everyone!
