Griffin Trophy

Sat 31 Jul
2 p.m.

The start is in the bar where at least one sailor from each class consumes a pint of their choice (no spirits, but water, lemonade and coke all acceptable).
They then race around a course set out in the yard before arriving on the beach where their craft awaits them.
There's a simple course to sail from the beach around a designated mark in the Harbour, back to the beach, run the yard course in reverse and finish at the bar consuming a second pint of something of your choice.
