Beer Club V Ship Castaways (Whitbread Cup round 2) - 17th May 2016.
“Surprise, Surprise!” – Captain Meme reporting
With the threat of rain still holding off much to everyone’s relief, we headed for the club. Our opponents for the night came form the first division, The Ship Castaways.
Once they’d docked and weighed anchor by way of the bar of course, everyone headed for the piste.
The Count cast off in the first game of the match against Steve and it wasn’t long before The Count’s abacus was getting a bit soggy. Steve now had the wind in his sails and soon cruised to a 9-2 victory for the Ship.
In the second game it was the turn of Lynne and Nigel. Lynne took an early lead which she built into 6-1. Soon Nigel’s outboard was purring along and he rapidly squeezed a few more knots out of his performance, enough to edge Lynne out 9-7.
Things were not looking good with Sparky seemingly blowing a fuse and Terry taking advantage and sailing away to victory 9-7.
Ever get that sinking feeling; well it felt a bit like that at three nil down. We couldn’t afford to loose another game.
Smokey was geared up for his confrontation against Gary and after crossing each others bows. Garry started to get into trouble and began gibing all over the place quickly Smokey took advantage mastering the high seas of the piste and prevailed 9-4.
Meme’s adversary was Nick and in the early stages it was all one way traffic for Nick.
Time for Meme to make a move and looking at the cut of his jib he meant business. Unfurling his spinnaker Meme coasted to a win for the club 9-4, déjà vu or what!
Lastly it was Lanky Sam’s and Alan’s turn to fight it out in a crucial final singles game. Salvo and counter salvo were exchanged in this battle of the high sea. With Lanky Sam in full sail he was beginning to pull away and with Alan’s anchor dragging it wasn’t long before Lanky had won 9-5 and levelled the match.
It’ a cruel sea we sail at times and in a twist of fate even Mystic Meg and her crystal ball couldn’t have predicted. The Ship was lacking a player to proceed with the deciding game of triples. It transpired that the Captain Steve after he’d won his game, obviously hadn’t been polishing or staring into his crystal ball and left early, leaving his team one short for a potential playoff. With this it was decided by the Ship that they would concede the final game and match. A win for the club but not the way we would have wanted it! A wins a win though.
Into the quarter finals we go and against another first division team the Fishers, hopefully we will have the same result in a more traditional manner.
