Whitstable Week - Full Report


Shame about the weather, but what a great week anyway! Whitstable Week often provides a selection of weather for the sailors, but this year took it to an extreme. Monday saw great sailing with a nice southwesterly 2-3, Tuesday was blown off and given over to the braver of the WYC windsurfing community. Wednesday saw a very windy and gusty day, but 13 boats managed to squeeze a race in, and Thursday & Friday saw a dead calm off Whitstable with not a breath of wind all afternoon forcing abandonment. However, with three races sailed we had results, and Dickie and Donna on their Dart 18 took the Oyster Trophy for first place overall, along with the Westminster Bank Trophy for the first placed Small Catamaran.
On the land side, the week was more successful, with a vinyl experience (supported mainly by Mike Oliver’s eclectic collection!) on Monday, a packed quiz night on Wednesday, dressing up and dressing down for cocktails on Thursday, and a great show from Andy Jackson’s band SILT on Friday.
Congratulations to the prize winners, and thank you to all the members who helped run the event. Also thanks to the Sheriff of Canterbury, Councillor Jeanette Stockley who presented the Whitstable Week trophies!
