"TREASURE HUNT 2020"
Despite the threatened rain, the 2020 Treasure Hunt went off without a hitch, thanks to the superb efforts and organisation of Peter & Bridget Crutchfield.
As usual they tried to completely fox us with their devious clues (did you know that Saxilby was twinned with Haarlemmerliede en Spaarwoule? There were some very curious residents of Burton Waters who saw 6 boats weaving their way in and out of the moorings searching for clues, another of which was a dogs bottom (please don't ask).
Six boats took part in this popular event this year, and for those who did not attend, you really are missing a really fun time out on the water.
As if searching for clues from Burton Waters to Saxilby were not enough to tax our befuddled grey matter, we were tasked to answer more general knowledge questions about famous sea captains. Who knew that the first woman to sail around the world single handed was Krystyna Chojndwska-Liskienicz (try that on your spell checker and see where it gets you).
A special mention must go to Mike & Amanda Rudkin, who in spite of breaking down, managed to get going again and to correctly answer 100% of the clues they were able to get to.
The eventual very well deserved winners, amid cries of cheat (just because they got the "around the world sailor" right) were Viv, Brian, Ann & Barry on Bojangles.
See you all next year to fight for the Taggart Trophy."
