RYCT winners at Combined Clubs Prize Night
Royal Yacht Club of Tasmania senior yachtsman Don Calvert headed a line-up of members who collected trophies at Saturday evening’s Tasmania Combined Clubs Prize Night Dinner held at the RYCT.
Calvert skippered his Castro 40 Intrigue to victory in the Division 1 AMS and IRC categories of the Combined Clubs summer pennant series for 2017-2018.
Other RYCT members who were overall prize winners and/or division placegetters were Jock Young (Juana), Peter Alcock (Kindred Spirit), Allan Morgan (Wyatih) and Astrolabe (Peter Bosworth).
Speaking on behalf of all competitors, Don Calvert gave a ringing endorsement of the format for Combined Clubs racing last summer.
More than 70 skippers, their crews and family members attended the prizegiving dinner with RYCT Commodore Tracy Matthews.“Fantastic long day races out into Storm Bay (for Division 1) and great afternoon river races,” Calvert said. “I trust the Interclub committee will come up with a similar format for next summer.”
• Next Friday evening, 11 May will be the RYCT’s Club Prize Night.
