End of season – Captain’s prize for Cruising
One of the great joys of being Cruiser Captain is having the privilege of making this award. This year the trophy goes to someone who knows offshore sailing including racing but now equally enjoys cruising shallow draft in the river, has for years made a valuable contribution facilitating Cruiser Fleet events, similarly makes a massive contribution to the club’s website content through superb photography and is a regular smiling face in the clubhouse. The Malista Salva is awarded to George Winder. Congratulations and thank you for your contribution to Club and Cruiser Fleet.
