Stanley Shorts 2014

Two more trophies for the October auction as the official domestic season comes to a close.

The ladies ran three solid and convincing races, twice finishing the 200m course in 58 seconds, three seconds faster than their fastest time last year, and keeping their championship trophy.

Our mixed battled hard against our friends and host of our training base, Tai Tam Tuk Villagers, and the eventual champions, Team Mushu. The final saw all three teams finish within a third of a second of each other. Stormys took third place.

The mens team made tremendous strides over their previous year’s performance. Last year, we made the bronze cup final. This year we made the silver cup final and came in second behind Tai Tam Tuk but ahead of the Lichtenstein Princely Navy who came third. We took 2 seconds off our fastest course time.

Much pizza was consumed afterwards.
