Seagull Race Report

December 12th 2012



Blessed with one of the rare nice days of the winter 29 craft of all shapes and sizes set off down the River Lerryn on a sunny and windless morning for the 25th anniversary British Seagull outboard motor race.   The theme or “Rig of the day” was “Silver” and the winner of the Commodore’s Trophy for the best dressed boat was James Johns.   The prize for the best dressed crew was won by Treve Fowler.    The Ship Inn Trophy trophy for overall winner was won by A. McMillan while the “Fast Lady” trophy for the first lady helm was won by Becky Swiggs.     This was a successful event and competitors and spectators enjoyed themselves which, of course, is what its all about.   There is a huge collection of photos of the event available to view in the gallery of lerryn.net

Other prizes were:

RNLI Shield (1st in 12ft & over class)                   D.Southcott

Winner Class C (Canoes)                                   C.Parks

Norman Douglass trophy (Spirit of event)             M.Parton

Concours d’elegance                                        A.Read

Minions BC Trophy (random drawn position)          M.Blackham

Consolation prize (last place)                             D.Wilson


Thanks are due to the members of the RLYS committee who always work hard to lay on this event and also to Jackie Parrott and Ann Gibbons for their stirling work keeping the mince pies hot and the mulled wine flowing.   They raised £97.50.    A Seagull outboard kindly donated by Mike Harrison was auctioned after the prizegiving and raised £70.    All in all we were able to make donations to local groups and charities totalling £275 as follows:   £25 to Combat Stress,  £50 to The Red Store,  £100 to Lerryn Area Minibus Association, and £100 to  The Memory Café which supports dementia sufferers.

The RNLI Raffle raised £176 (not included in the above totals). 

The next Seagull Race will be on Monday, 30th December, 2013 in the afternoon.

The Summer Solstice event will be on Saturday 22nd June, 2013.
