The current Oxford student team emerged victorious in the annual Generations Event held at Farmoor on Saturday 29th September 2018, from a field of 9 entries. Oxford 70s finished a close second. It was a delightful warm and sunny September day, but the wind did not appear until lunchtime. Although proving shifty, a fair wind then held until late afternoon, enabling most teams to sail 5 good races.
With the sailing over, more than 40 of the participants repaired to Kellogg College for an exceptionally good annual dinner and most convivial evening. Many thanks to Chris Pugh for arranging the dinner yet again, to Lottie Rapson for organising the event so well, and to all the Oxford students who enabled the day to run so smoothly. This was Lottie’s third and final year as Generations Event Organiser. We wish her well as she moves to Oslo towards the end of the year.

Loving Cup Ceremony
This final clip shows the progress of the Society’s Loving Cup Ceremony at the Annual Dinner in Kellog College, Oxford on 29th September 2018. Note the second participant encouraging the first to sit down – so that (correctly) there are only three people on their feet at any one time.
