The Humphries Cup and Allen Cup are both trophies that can only be sailed for by the Cadets of the Club.
The races for these Cups was held this morning at 11 a.m., notepad check, pen check, camera check. Competitors for these trophies - Luke Herhily and Douglas Oliver in their RS200 and Ryan Herhily in his Topper.
Today was the first time that the RS200 of Luke Herhily and Douglas Oliver took to the water, so prior to the Race, they took it out for a few practice laps and raising and lowering the Spinnaker.
As there were only two boats competing for the above trophies, some Lasers came out to join them on the course.
The RS200 had a very good start and sailed a direct course for the first buoy - W1 whilst the Lasers and Topper sailed along the shoreline before tacking out to sea, having rounded the mark the RS200 sailed into an early lead and increased that lead over the Lasers and the Topper whilst heading up to SP1. The Topper of Ryan Herhily sailed a very steady race and even though he was passed by the faster boats on handicap he finished first overall.
