Inside House clinched the Flag Officers Trophy from Sailing

So the twilight season has come and gone, culminating in a most enjoyable and very successful Flag Officers’ Team Twilight Race Last Wednesday, which was narrowly won by the Catering Division, only one point ahead of the lean mean Sailing team. Interestingly, only 7 seconds held the Sailing heroes away from a victory! Clearly , too many cooks did not spoil the broth in this instance! It was great to see Rear Commodore Inside House, Polla Wasserfall, beaming from ear to ear holding the trophy aloft and sharing it around with all from Inside House. That trophy has a lot of history, so it is super to see it coming back after a number of years of no flags contest…

We are very pleased to welcome Lufthansa, as the sponsors of the next season of Twilight Sailing, as well as the generous sponsor of a set of return business class tickets to Europe by lucky draw after the Flags Race…

What is most pleasing is that the reinvented Flag Officers Race brought the club together in the spirit of fun with good rivalry…and the way the Inside and Outside Houses organised their teams will motivate the others into earlier action in future!

Pictured here are the five Flag Officer’s: Dale Kushner, Commodore; Ray Matthews, Vice Commodore; Polla Wasserfall, RC Inside House; RC Sailing, Hylton Hale; Derek Shuttleworth, RC Outside House.
