July Series Interval - Action from Saturday’s Sailing

Saturday was a busy day at the Club. It started early with the Junior training session, then it was Annual Ladies Race which was combined with the next race in the Junior race series and finished with the Grand Pursuit Race.

Well Done to Helen for winning the Ladies Race, Harriet was close behind Helen on handicap and won the Junior Race. It was great to see Tuesday Night Sailors Georgina, Trish and Catherine getting involved in the racing too.

Action from the Ladies and Junior Race

In the Grand Pursuit Race the early starter, Jo in the Mirror and David in the Heron, lead the way for the first couple of laps but were eventually caught by Bill in the Solo, Denis and Jo in the Enterprise, Alan in the Streaker. As the clock ticked down toward the end of the Race the wind went light and Denis and Jo managed to glide pass Bill to win the race by a boat length !

A good day's sailing for all !
