Summery Weather sees 19 race as Summer Series Starts

The continuing hot weather, light winds and thermals made for interesting racing on Sunday but Race Officer Andrew Beaumont still managed to set some of the best courses of the season. The first race for the general Handicap Series was won by Mike Pritchard from Paul Jago, Bob Cuerstemont and Kevin Last. The fifth boat ended up 10 minutes behind the leader on corrected time. A good turnout for the second race saw Mike Pritchard and Kevin Last sail well clear of the rest of the fleet, albeit in different fleets. Kevin won the Fast fleet easily from Kevin Milton and Brian Davies. Mike had an equally emphatic win in the Slow Fleet with Andrea Murphy second and Jill Reid third.
