Last night during the Burnham Week Squib and Blaze dinner at the RCYC. The fleets decided to raise money for the Burnham On Crouch Lifeboat Station.
After a lovely 3 course dinner at the Royal Corinthian Yacht Club the Burnham Blaze and Squib fleets played a couple of games, Pin the Pin and the Port Challenge.
Pin the Pin
Pin the Pin was created after Tuesday’s start, with 10 seconds to go and the pin end was not visible with at least 75% of the fleet were covering the pin. The decision was then made to AP. The race committee representative on the night challenged the 5 tables to Pin the Pin using an image taken on the new camera just off the start line. After speaking the representative this morning everyone was at least one boat length away from the correct position. Attached to the bottom of this post there is the picture used last night. Feel free to have a go a share you guess on Instagram tagging @BurnhamWeek and #bw2021
The aim of the game is to get a £1 coin a close as you can from a certain distance to with the bottle. One bottle of port, multiple competitive sailors and several pound coins later. Over £120 was raised for the Burnham On Crouch Lifeboat Station.
