Enterprise Open Meeting 22nd May 2021

Silver Wing SC were delighted to welcome 12 boats to the water on Saturday 22nd May for their ‘Back to Blue’ Enterprise Open Meeting.  The 12 entrants included 6 visitors from as far afield as Rugby, Burghfield, Cookham and Rickmansworth.

The four races were closely fought but Nigel and Andy Bird won convincingly in the end.

After the racing a fabulous tea was laid on by the SWSC members and in the prizegiving speeches, tribute was paid to the sadly passed away ex-Commodore and Enterprise sailor David Finch as well as a fascinating address by Alan Woolford of what was Ariel SC who explained the history of the Just Jane Trophy which has been adopted by SWSC as the trophy for this event.

The general consensus that this was a very welcome opportunity to hoist the Blue sails again, have a competitive sail and catch up with old friends, which is surely what sailing should be about.
