Piette Trophy for 3.8 miles (approx) handicap road walk

Rocquaine Bay, Guernsey

RWA Permit 9060-1

Rob Elliott and Donna AllanLocal Best time for Donna (pictured left) at Rocquaine

Donna Allan, racing in her first Piette Trophy handicap race, over approximately 3.8 miles, knocked over four minutes off Rose Druckes best local womens time as she crossed the line in 34.33 for the course along the Rocquaine coast road. Her target next year will no doubt be to get close to the all comers best time which is a couple of minutes quicker set in 1975 by French International walker Jacquelline Delassaux.

A small field of walkers set off in the hot conditions in the two lap out and back course with first off Mick Le Sauvage caught early on by Kay Coulson who started thirty seconds behind. When Donna set off she had the local time in her mind and hit the halfway point in 17.01 and well inside her target. Stuart Le Noury, last off was heading towards a solid race but realised early on after only the first lap that Donna was well out of sight and would be the winner as she closed in quickly on the other competitors. 

Slowing slightly in the second half Donna still had over a minute and a half cushion on second walker home Stuart Le Noury who walked an actual time of 31.11. Phil Lockwood took third place with Kay Coulson in fourth, just ahead of Mick Le Sauvage.

Elliott cruises to second Piette Trophy win

Rob Elliott secured his second win in the annual Piette Trophy handicap walk, adding to his win two years ago. The small field off walkers contested the race in hot conditions on the two lap out and back course along the coast road at Rocquaine, aided by a welcome sea breeze.

Rob passed Kay Coulson, first away and leading the race with half a mile to go and with a watchful eye on quickest in the field Stuart Le Noury coming the other way, soon worked out that victory was secure.

Kay held on to second place ahead of Phil Lockwood. 

The next club race is the final one in the Heritage Group Championships over one mile. Moving ahead to September, the annual Church to Church 19.4 miles walk will take place  on Sunday September 2nd starting at 9.00 am at South Esplanade.

Piette Trophy at Rocquaine

Sunday July 31st 2016

Sarnia Walking Club

Piette Trophy

Rocquaine Bay, Guernsey

3.8 miles handicap road walk

RWA Permit no: 6039-1

Following in fathers footsteps

image4Rob Elliott, the leading race walker in Guernsey many years ago, had only one trophy on the Sarnia Walking Clubs calendar open to him, that had eluded him. The handicapped Piette Trophy, held along the coast road at Rocquaine Bay and usually in conjunction with the Rocquaine Regatta was always out of reach in spite of Rob managing to set the course record three times.

Father Mick had won the first two events way back in 1971 and 1972 and until this year the family name was absent from the trophy. A small field of 6 walkers raced this year due to the absence of other regulars being off island.

In form Kay Coulson started impressively but slowed towards the end as she was reeled in by the first three walkers, but still recorded a huge personal course best time of 43.31, well ahead of her old 45.08 time.

Rob Elliott, off last on handicap, over took Phil Lockwood early on and made inroads on the others on the two lap course. He sensed his first win as he made the final turn for home with three quarters of a mile to go. It was only a matter of time before he hit the front with a wry smile as he went past eventual second placed walker Marie Macdonald to continue to victory.

Marie had the race of the day as she removed 2 minutes 14 seconds off her best time and kept Mick Le Sauvage back to third place.

At the back of the field Peter Beckerleg could not hold off Phil Lockwood who passed him late on.

The next race is on Sunday August 14th at Footes Lane. The distance is 1 mile and is the final race in the Heritage Group Championships. Looking further ahead, the annual Church to Church road walk will take place on Sunday September 4th at 9.00 am over the one lap course between the islands parish churches, starting and finishing at the South Esplanade.

 

The event, celebrating its 80th birthday in 2016, started out as a challenge to walk the 19.4 miles route in 3 hours 20 minutes. The challenge was met and the time broken as 38 walkers finished the walk. Todays walkers have a generous five and a half hours time limit, catering for those who just want to say they have completed the Church to Church.

Amongst the walkers expected this year are members of the Sarnia Walking Club as well as a few regular overseas walkers.The organisers welcome anyone wishing to take part, experienced at walking or not. Walk details can be found at https://churchtochurch.wordpress.com/ or email lenouryjedburgh@cwgsy.net .

Tenth win for Dorey

Dave Dorey won the Piette Trophy held in conjunction with the Rocquaine Regatta on a very wet and windy Sunday morning. He crossed the line in first place for the tenth time since the first edition of the handicapped event in 1971. Mick Le Sauvage finished 18 seconds behind for second place, narrowly ahead of third placed Peter Beckerleg.

Junior walker, Alex Sinkevics, walking half the distance of the senior walkers, finished in a time of 20 minutes for the 1.9 miles course held on the coast road at Rocquaine.

Le Sauvage returned the fastest time of the day with his 41.38, three seconds ahead of Beckerleg. Stuart Le Noury retired shortly after the start as he felt the effects of a fall during the race series he was competing in over the previous seven nights.

The next walk is on Sunday August 9th at Les Amarreurs at 9.30 am. It is the 9th race in the Heritage Group Championships. Details from Jayne Le Noury, lenouryjedburgh@cwgsy.net.

Rocquaine Regatta Piette Trophy

Rocquaine Bay, Guernsey

Deserved Win for Kay Coulson

Kay Coulson, with a three minutes improvement on her last years walk, led from start to finish to win the Piette Trophy held in conjunction with the Rocquaine Regatta. With the benefit of seeing how close your competitors are on the out and back course she could see what she had in hand on the final turn to the finish. The closest challenger was visiting 1994 Commonwealth Games competitor Karen Ratcliffe, walking smoothly and gradually closing the gap, but falling short of first place, eventually finishing 34 seconds after the winner.

A  good walk from newcomer Marie Macdonald gave her third place to give the women a one, two, three in the event. Backmarkers Stuart and Jason Le Noury were next to finish separated by ten seconds, with Stuart recording the fastest time of the day with his actual time of 31.22. Mick Le Sauvage, Kevin Le Noury and Jayne Le Noury, were next to finish, closely packed together and swiftly overtaken in quick succession by the Le Noury brothers.

An effort from Rob Elliott in the final yards saw him overtake Peter Beckerleg for 9th place.

Past Church to Church Walk winner Dave Ratcliffe, a visitor from England, in his first race for many years walked a steady first lap of two before moving up a gear in the last lap. Difficult to handicap because of no recent walk times, but looking quite fit he set off with Elliott. A gap soon opened with Elliott over a minute ahead at halfway but not increased in the second half as Ratcliffe clawed back some of the deficit.

And to think the Ratcliffe walkers, staying at a hotel on the course only intended to come and meet the SWC walkers once again and watch the race!

Rocquaine Regatta 3.8 miles handicap road walk (approx) for the Piette Cup
Rocquaine Bay, Guernsey
 
Piette Victory for Mick Le Sauvage (receiving the cup from Rob Elliott)
 
Mick Le Sauvage took the race win in the the Rocquaine Regatta handicap road walk held along the coast road at Rocquaine Bay. In crossing the line first he took home the Piette Trophy for the 3.8 miles walk for the 5th time since his first win in 1974.
With his six minute handicap he had closed the gap on scratch man Allan Harris by over three minutes at the halfway point. Backmarker Stuart Le Noury had made up his thirty seconds handicap on brother Jason, but were both down on their anticipated finish times. Jason seemed quite happy to stay on his brothers shoulder until close to the finish when he made his move to outlast Stuart. He did this comfortably to gain the family honours but not fast enough to challenge for the top places as Le Sauvage in first in a watch time of 47.56, led home Rose Druckes 48.10 and Allan Harris in 48.51.
Fastest time of the day was by Stuart Le Noury in 31.54, ahead of Jason with 32.11
The next walk is on Friday August 2nd at 6.30 pm. The venue is Les Amarreurs Road and is over 2 kilometres and Championship Race 9. Details from elliottcaleta@cwgsy.net. Pictured below, Stuart Le Noury leads Jason Le Noury at 2 miles.

Rocquaine Regatta 1982

Filed under: Dave Dorey, Jayne Le Noury, Kevin Le Noury, Rocquaine Regatta — sarnia @ 7:55 pm

Jayne Le Noury came into possesion of a photo taken back in 1982 on 7th August. The event was the Rocquaine Regatta Handicap road walk. The distance was approx 1.9 miles for Under 17 walkers (1 lap) and 3.8 miles for seniors. This was probably one of the last occasions the walk was held on a Saturday, walking through the other Regatta events and people milling around.

Not a large field for the time but a lot of walkers then had to work on a Saturday. Details of the Regatta were put online some years ago and reproduced and updated here.

Rocquaine Regatta 1982

Back of photo, left to right, Dave Johnson, Kevin Le Noury, Darren Lynch, Mick Elliott, Dave Dorey. In front, Lisa Gallienne (25), Jonathan Le Cras (almost hidden), Jenny Tostevin, Antoinette Bougourd (22) Sharon Martin in pony tail, Patricia Bougourd. On the start line Nicholas Martin (92) and Jayne Le Noury (right). Bryan Bonner is the timekeeper.

The races are part of the Rocquaine Regatta, for the Piette Trophy and junior equivalent, over a 2 lap course covering a total of 3.8 miles for seniors and half that for Under 17`s. The walk is on a handicapped basis giving all walkers a chance of victory.

 The Rocquaine Regatta walk was first walked in 1971, when the Regatta was re started after many years absence. It was originally held on the actual Regatta day on a Saturday morning, when the road was closed for half of the 2 lap out and back course along the coast road. The course was defined with a turning point at the crash barriers put up for one end of the road closure and a convenient road triangle at a lane junction almost a mile away at the other end. This gave an approximate distance of 3.8 miles for the yacht handicapped walk. The walk despite being closed to vehicles had the down fall of many people taking part in other activites on the road and beach crossing the paths of those racing.

 The walk now takes place on the Sunday morning but still with Regatta status, starting at the coast layby near Imperial Hotel, walking towards the Hotel, turning at road junction and heading back to the grass triangle almost one mile away near the old “fish factory” before going back to the start. The Junior Under 17 walkers for many years had their own version over one lap of the course.

Some walkers made up some unusual coloured athletics kit for the early events, with a move away from “Club colours” to join in with the overall colourful “Regatta”. My own father Mick Elliott had a striking hooped towelling kit made up by his mother in law, whilst Rob Waterman walked in a flower powered vest. Mick Elliott took the honours in the first two walks crossing the line first. Since then an Elliott has not managed to get their hands on the Piette Trophy, despite winning most other Trophies on offer in Guernsey!

 Some consolation is that Rob Elliott holds the local best time for the course with a 28.27 clocking in 1978, improving to 28.13 in 1980 and 27.48 in 1981. These times were only good enough for 4th, 4th and 5th in the handicapped walk.

In 1997 Jim Ball (Steyning AC, England) created an allcomers best time of 26.45. The fastest local lady is Rose Drückes in 38.41 in 1994, with French International walker Jacquelline Delassaux recording 31.32 in 1975.

Terry Bates is the current “Piette Trophy” holder. Dave Dorey has won 9 times and Rose Druckes 5.

Piette Trophy Win For Terry Bates
 
The inform Terry Bates (pictured a few years ago in Church to Church), walking this event well over two minutes quicker than in 2011, easily won the Piette Trophy in the handicapped 3.8 miles road walk held on a two lap course at Rocquaine Bay. As Terry crossed the line in 46.42, he had time to compose himself and watch newcomer Allan Harris take second place almost two minutes later.
 
 
A close race for third place saw five walkers home in 22 seconds. Backmarkers Stuart Le Noury and Carl Thomson had a race long battle, with Stuart edging ahead with a ten metres lead at one mile. Carl was back on his shoulder at the end of the first 1.9 miles lap, before Stuart once again pulled away.
 
Another effort from Carl resulted in him leading by ten metres at the final turn with a final twist in the remaining three quarters of a mile as other walkers were closed down and overtaken, as Stuart got back on level terms and moved ahead to take the third place by five seconds. Stuarts actual time being a new personal best time on this course.
 
 
Carl Thomson took fourth place and the second fastest time of the day, ahead of Mick Le Sauvage, Phil Lockwood and Joanne Le Prevost. Last years winner Dave Dorey found himself at the other end of the result sheet this year, back in eight place and well out of contention.
 
 
The next race is the final race in the Heritage Group Championships. The distance is One Mile at Footes Lane on Friday August 3rd at 6.30 pm.
Not too far away is the Church to Church Walk over a distance of 19.4 miles on Sunday September 2nd at 9.00 am.

Another Rocquaine win for Dave Dorey
 
Dave Dorey, (pictured in recent race) stalwart member of the Sarnia Walking Club collected the Piette Trophy for the ninth time in the 3.8 miles Rocquaine Regatta handicap walk, when holding off the fast finishing Stuart Le Noury. Dorey first won the race back in 1975, slowing down over the years but can still put in a determined effort. Set off with eventual third placed walker Carol Bates, he soon pulled away on the first of the two laps held along the Rocquaine Bay coast road. Carol was back on his shoulder around the three miles mark before he pulled away again, never to be headed as he crossed the line in 45.39. Last man away, Stuart Le Noury, moving swiftly through the walkers fell short of catching Dave by twelve seconds but pipped Carol on the line. Both Stuart and Carol had good reason to be happy as both smashed their previous best times by around one minute forty seconds. Stuart also broke the thirty minutes barrier, adding his name to the handful of other walkers to have done the same. Rob Elliott, destined to never win the event, despite winning every other senior local trophy on offer, pulled away from Terry Bates to take fourth place, reversing the positions of their last race over 5,000 metres. Kevin Le Noury, only just back from holiday with wife Jayne suffered from the lack of training and finished in 6th and 8th place respectively, separated by Phil Lockwood who recorded the second quickest time of the day.
The next walk is on Sunday August 14th at Footes Lane at 8.30 am. The event is the Willow Trust Guernsey Licenced Fiduciaries One Hour track walk and all are welcome to enter. Details from Jayne Le Noury, tel 246865.
Coming up soon is the Church to Church Walk over 19.4 miles, celebrating its 75th anniversary. The event is open to all walkers over 17 years, men and women. The walk starts at 9.00 am on Sunday September 4th at Havelet Bay, South Esplanade with a time limit of 5 hours 30 minutes.  Finishers receive certificates recording their time and a Church to Church medal.
