Morecambe Sailing Club 2014 prize winners.

Morecambe Sailing Club’s 2014 prize list reflected a mixed season disrupted by weather and by efforts to complete the refurbishment and extension to the clubhouse.

It was influenced by the need for the club’s instructors to take out newcomers to the club on club meets.

The prize list also showed honour shared among competitors rather than any one crew dominating the awards.

The awards were presented at an end of year social evening at MSC clubhouse.
