The Welwyn Garden City Sailing Club Punchbowl Trophy will remain the property of Annette Walter and Mike Ettershank as they took their third victory in the competition.
The three-hour chase involved changing the bar at the end of each lap, providing a lot of fun for the juniors, a challenge for the elders and plenty of photo opportunities for the gathered crowd.
Sheila Stowe and Charles Adams in Another Comet kept pace with the future winners during the first part of the race, but gradually fell back.
David Lambert and Alan Campbell’s supernova team came near the end to take second place.
The junior trophy was won by Angelo and Francis Hansen after very close races. Oscar and Ned Hayward finished second with Pranay and Nick Evans in third place.
Walter and Ettershank also won the WGC Centennial Trophy with awards and medals for all who made it to the podium.
