Amie King, of Girton Sailing Club, led the line in the annual Boxing Day Bash


By Connor Thompson


A grey-skied day was brightened up by a turnout of 12 boats, which was led by Girton Sailing Club’s Amie King.

Crews were eager to shake off the Christmas day excesses by competing for the last title of the year, the annual Boxing Day Bash.

In light winds, which were sailable conditions, King (Supernova) found her form by working her way to the front of the fleet to take second place behind club-mate Paul Hardman (Lightning) in the first of two pursuit races.

Joanne Daubney (Supernova) followed in third place, before Ed Johnson checked in at fourth.

In the second race it was the ladies again that made the running.

Johnson had to battle hard to finish in second.

King was again in the top two, and this time managed to go one better and finish first, while Duabney took third.

With the scores of the two races in, the final standings saw supernova sailers finish in the top three as King finished on top.

Johnson, Duabney, Paul Leafe (Moth), Paul King (Laser 2000) and Bob Warriner (Mirror) all followed King in the final rankings.
