The results for the Colne Match, and therefore the entire Championship are now up on the Sailing Barge Association website at http://www.sailingbargeassociation.co.uk/championship2012.html
I am warned by Ed Gransden that these may yet be ‘provisional’ and that some ducking and diving may occur to change things (so, nervous times for Ed and Edith May who are provisionally the winners!) but as they stand the Championship was won by Edith May with 34 points, closely followed by Lady of the Lea (33) and Edme (31) with Repertor 4th (30), Marjorie 5th (26) and (Tadaaaaa!) Cambria coming in a creditable 6th with 17 points, first of the “Didn’t enter many races” group. The big scores above us were gained by barges who scored in 5, 6 or 7 races. We and those below us scored in only 5 or fewer. Cambria’s races went as follows; 3rd on the Medway (6 points), 2nd= on the Thames with Edith May and Edme, all on 6 points and finally equal (points scoring) winners on the Colne with Edith May and Edme, all with 5 points. As I said, these may be provisional and I have also not yet seen any kind of full report on what made up our 5 points. I will let you know when I have more information.
