ARTS BY THE SEA By Hannah Gibbins

rts by the Sea took over the town earlier this month. The ‘New Frontier’ Atheme offered insight into a world overrun by technology and the impact that it has on human life. Many events displayed intergalactic worlds, aliens and technology being used in a way that is impressive to even the most experienced technophile. Silicon Shores by The Colour Project was highly anticipated event that launched the weekend; a phenomenal light show projected onto the town hall. The show addressed the impact of technology and plastics on the ocean, the show opened the minds of those watching in a totally unique way that set the tone for the week. The Gardens were overtaken by singing conjoined aliens, artists armed with spray cans and musicians of all kinds. There truly was something for everyone; kids sat in the sunshine and adults drank and listened to live music while at Picnic Park Sessions. The bandstand was never silent and the gardens were always lit by the beautiful weather, a screening or a light show. The whole thing truly was a spectacle. A wacky, dream-like display of lights and sounds, mind controlled cinema, time machines, caravans with astronauts inside. It truly was bonkers. Photos: Hannah Gibbins/Faith Rowley

But, like all great sportsmen, RYDER CUP 2018: they seem to have a knack to prove doubters wrong in the most emphatic fashion. And that’s exactly what Garcia did. Three points, one on each day, with the Sunday singles win By Chuck Adolphy against Rickie Fowler making him Europe’s all-time leading points scorer. I’m sorry Sergio, THE BEST MOMENTS you are a legend.

5 - Noren rubbing salt into US wounds You almost felt sorry for Alex Noren and Bryson Dechambeau. They were the only match left out on the course for a considerable amount of time with the result firmly sealed. For all the hype, expectation and hysteria, the 42nd edition for the famous trophy already Dechambeau, holding the white flag on the 18th green, watched on as the Swede holed seems a distant memory. But like the titanic battles of yesteryear, this time round did not a snake to take the match 1up and spark more jubilant scenes. A fitting ending for the disappoint.

1 - The whitewash When the pairings were announced for Friday’s afternoon session, it looked bleak reading for Thomas Bjorn’s team. The fear of the US powerhouses appeared to be valid as they got off to a flying start in the morning fourballs. But Europe’s first ever foursomes whitewash put the Dane’s side in firm control and Molinari, Fleetwood and co. did not let off until Sunday evening.

2 - Fleetwood goes mental It’s hard to believe this was his first Ryder Cup. Has there been a more likeable European 6 - First tee on Friday with an incredibly tidy game to match? And he led the team’s victory dance on Sunday If Le Golf National had any critics before, any now are plane ignorant. The course was night, like an excited child running up and down the fairways of Le Golf National. The sight epic, with the best in the world struggling to map their way around the thick rough and of him hoisted among the fans chanting will I’m sure live long in the memory. lakes in Paris. On Friday morning, the golfing world watched as 7,000 fans roared, Viking- clapped and ‘ole-ed’ as the anticipation ceased and the games begun. A unique sporting amphitheatre fit for this one-off colossal event. 3 - Mickleson ends it in the drink Could there be a more perfect moment for Europe to regain the Ryder Cup? Phil Mickelson, 7 - Sergio’s putt on Saturday morning a US stalwart, up against our latest hero, Francesco Molinari, going for the perfect five The morning after the session before and Europe needed to follow up Friday’s astonishing points on Sunday. And don’t forget Lefty was the one who headed the ‘hope’ and ‘change’ 4 and 0 and cement their advantage. It was looking plain-sailing with the board covered in in the American team back in 2014. When his tee shot was wet on the 16th, it gave the blue again, but Koepka and Finau fought hard to gain something against Garcia and Rory trophy back and sparked euphoric scenes on the tee box. Chin up Phil. Mcllroy. 1UP with 2 to play, it looked like it was heading down the last. But Europe’s soon to be greatest player poured in from long-range and went ballistic.
