Generations Cup sailing

Category: Featured, General, OT News

Old Tonbridgian sailors took on current boys in the second Generations Cup at Bough Beech.

Competing in ‘fireflies’, the OTs and the School were able to field two teams apiece. The afternoon began with a round robin tournament, followed by a best of three decider between the top two teams.

In a rerun of last year's final, race one went to the School first team but the OT's proved both resilient and wily, fighting back in race two by forcing a number of penalties to level the score.  The School sailors proved too good in race three, however, and successfully retained the cup.
