At a packed BJRC prizegiving dinner last week, Marconi’s cruiser racing owners, helms and crew were presented with their 2017 season trophies, glassware and championships.
The Marconi Cruiser Cup (centre of image) was presented to BSC member Martin Scarth, who was also crowned local handicap series winner. The Bernard Payne half hull trophy also went outside of the club to BSC member Peter Copsey (2nd in top R) but other than the BJRC Chairman, Steve Sharpe, all the other faces in the winners image attached to this report are Marconi members.
Richard Robarts and his crew on Blue Moon were called often throughout the evening to collect their trophies for winning numerous IRC races and received a deafening reception at the end of the night when they were recognised as IRC Series Champions.
