Ten sailors took part in the Parkes Cup on Saturday 31 October, two in the Junior fleet, both sailing RS Tera Pros, and eight in the Senior fleet – all sailing Lasers. Although the wind was very light south westerly and only two races were held, the sailors enjoyed themselves.
Aphendule Maneli came 1st in the Junior fleet with JP Kriel second. Louis Fechter was the winner in the Senior fleet with Sanele Maggazza 2nd & Andrew Finn 3rd. The Parkes family provided wonderful prizes and also rewarded the Bridge/Rescue crew. Mrs Parkes provided a wonderful spread of cakes for tea, for which she is renowned and the Commodore thanked her with a bouquet of flowers.
Thank you to the Parkes for their continued & excellent sponsorship of the event and to the sailors for making it worthwhile. Photographs courtesy of Jock McConnachie.
