Marconi Shield Model Yacht Race

Wednesday 5 May 2010

There was another very successful model yacht race on Ushet on the Mayday Bank Holiday Sunday. A large crowd gathered to watch five boats - including three made during the winter workshops - compete for the Marconi Shield.

Congratulations to Conor and Cathal McCurdy who won, making it two victories in a row for Conor. Brian Teggart came second racing on his own, and in only his second race. Marianne Green and Johnny Mitchell came third, continuing Johnny's strong start to his first season. Douglas Cecil - also racing on his own - came in fourth, and Stephen Ryan and Jessica Bates brought up the rear, but were just happy to actually finish this time! Many thanks again to Loughie McQuilkin for all this work with the new boats over the last few months, and of course to Marina McMullan for all her hard work organising the races. The next race will be on the next Bank Holiday Sunday, 30th May.
