CORNISH NIPPER CHAMPS AT CARBIS BAY-16/17 July 2011
A big well done to everyone who competed at the weekend, at the Nipper Cornish champs. It was a great weekend, and we had some great results. We came fifth overall, just 6.5 points behind Gylly, who were fourth. Newquay were third, and Portreath were finally knocked off the top spot by St Ives. Overall 5th with 417.75 pts, Boys 5th with 190 pnts, Girls 4th with 227.75 pts.
A big thank you to my fellow team managers, Emma and James, and also to all the parents who helped to officiate and provide water safety cover. Gerard did a fab job of starting all the races, so thanks to him also. Thank you to the parents who looked after their team managers, by bringing us coffee and tea – other parents take note (we also welcome cakes and biscuits!)! Finally a massive thank you to Sean Keeler and James Harrison who sorted and transported all of the boards back and forth on both days – a pain of a job and much appreciated. Sorry if I have forgotten anyone.
Finally, well done to all the nippers, who put in a great effort – looking forward to the Nationals now! Medals for thoise who scored in the top three in any event will be given out on Sunday 24 July. Consent forms also due back by Sunday please! See team photo on slideshow on home page.
