Ron to the Fore in Legenderry Clipper Open!


The Thursday Open Series paid homage this week to the city’s sailing fraternity with the Legenderry Clipper Open! The calm weather brightened the mood of the large turnout as they vied to be first across the line.


That honour went to Mr Ron Grieve by virtue of a Break-of-Tie as no less than four contestants recorded equal scores of 38 points. The first to float away from the winner’s circle was the unfortunate Cecil Thompson who finished just outside the prizes. Visitor Mr Derek Wilson(12) claimed third spot and Mr Alan Simpson(9) was jumping as he took the second prize. Sixteen handicapper Mr Grieve standard was hoisted to the top of the mast, by virtue of shooting the best back nine, despite his golfing dingy shipping water on the Par 3 8th and again on the relatively simple Par 4 16th where he failed to register a score! Mr Ernie Heywood(1) sailed off into the Thursday sunset with yet another Gross Prize after his fine 36 points.
