Pout Cup

Congratulations to Max Buttimer for winning the Pout Cup for vintage 10R yachts on 3/07/10
finally raced at Gosport.

At the Group’s main meeting of the year at MYSA Kensington on 4/07/10 attended by 30 or so
members, many travelling from afar to a Round pond choked with algae growth which
prevented any sailing, an excellent time was nonetheless had by all, discussing and comparing
notes, whilst viewing many interesting boats some only recently acquired. The meeting stayed
close to the clubhouse and benefited from the delightful aromas of the adjacent Italian Society’s
summer barbeque as well as discrete viewings of a recently acquired MYSA archive of
wonderfully presented original Admiral Turner blueprints.
