Laying Up Supper 2019

Laying Up Supper 2019

Ely Sailing Club's annual Trophy Presentation Evening was once again an enjoyable occasion. With the evening starting at 7pm, it signalled the start to a very warm and friendly evening.

The trophies on display looked magnificent, some of which had recently been refurbished to smarten them up, while others had been renewed to replace those that were starting to look a little tired. The club's new round dining tables and chairs transformed the look of the clubhouse, and created a great sociable dining experience.

The evening kicked off with a hearty Hog Roast supplied by Histon Hog Roast with an assortment of salads and side dishes, with many members going up for seconds. Liz Ungless kindly prepared a wonderful array of desserts, which much like the dinner, disappeared very quickly!

After a brief pause the prize giving ceremony followed, where each winner had their achievements read out one by one by Commodore Mark Stamford, and trophies awarded by his partner Christine Duncan. Prize winners received a certificate of their awards and the trophies themselves.

Expressions of thanks and gratitude were exchanged with all those who had contributed their time willingly and freely to the “ESC Cause” throughout the season, especially Liz and Gary Ungless, the SI’s, DI’s, ADI’s and all the training team and other members who have contributed to the smooth running of the club during the past year.

Well done to all the prize winners, and a special thank you to all members who took the time to make it such an enjoyable evening.
