Matthews Commemoration Race / Downriver Series 2018

With the elite Merlin sailors off enjoying the Alpine snow or raising another glass in their French and German chateaux and the Solo sailors preferring the company of their families and a home fire it was left to the impoverished, some say intrepid, Laser sailors ably supported by Una to sail the last race of the year. By sailing we really mean drifting but nonetheless a tightly fought race was duly completed and congratulations go to Richard (Jarvis) who is the 2018 winner of the Matthews Commemoration Race. It was also the concluding race of the Downriver Series and, yet again, Una swept all before her followed by the Commodore and Nick W - well done. So ends 2018 - Happy New Year to all and here's looking forward to 2019.
