Alton Water Eastern Series final Phantom Open Meeting

Alton Water Phantom Open 15th-16th October 2016

Alton Water hosted the last round of the 2016 travellers circuit with 23 entries from around the Eastern region and further afield. Th largest contingent  were from Creeksea SC with 6 boats and one Alton based ex-phantom sailor rejoined the fold for the weekend whilst Matt Hart also from Alton gave the boat a go.

Sailors were greeted with light shifty winds on the Saturday with the days proceedings kicking off with a phantom tuning tutorial by sailors from the front of the fleet, followed by 3 practice races. The last race of the day started the series and in light shifty winds the race was won by Alton water sailor Matthew House coming back to Phantom sailing after a summer sabbatical big boat sailing in Scotland

That evening The Gardeners Arms hosted 22 sailors and PWAGS for the evenings End of Season meal and social gathering. At the end of the evening half the fleet seemed to be staying with Matthew House, whilst the Creeksea  and one Oulton Broad sailor went back to the comfort of the back of their vans and cars.

The Phantom Class is sad to announce the sudden passing of John Torrance on Wednesday 19th October.  John was a long time Phantom Sailor, committee member and class measurer and will be sorely missed.  To quote one of the many posts on facebook "Sailing on the river Crouch won't feel the same without him"

Our thoughts are with his family at this time.
