Saturday: Bert Ferris Cactus Cup.
At the commencement of the memorial service for Bert Ferris last Thursday, Commodore Charles Meredith announced the historic Cactus Cup will now be named the Bert Ferris Cactus Cup.
This honours Bert’s membership since 1944, his extraordinary service to RMYS and his deep knowledge the Squadron’s history and protocols. Bert competed in many Cactus Cups and he totally understood its origins and significance.
It was the almost perfect day for the race. The wind was too light at the start but after 15min delay we got the fleet under way. Its was a slow old race with many a boat thinking äre we going backwards”but they all got home in time for Mussels and Frankfurt’s.
The overall winner taking home the The Bert Ferris Cactus Cup Was The Bird – Christopher Harve. Well done team.
