“Pretoria Sailing Club retained the Downham lnterclub trophy for the eighth successive year. Martin Lambrecht was the most successful skipper from this team and won the individual trophy with three firsts in the five rounds sailed. The other members of Pretoria A’s team were Andrew de Vlieg and Nicky Hooyberg who gave Lambrecht able support.”
