Summer Series and Air Show

There was a lot of activity in Gorleston today with many people there to watch the Gt Yarmouth Air Show. Parking places were at a premium and the sensible ones arrived early. It was a cloudy day with the wind generally coming from the SW and ranging from F5 to F1. Race one was the most testing with some big shifts and gusts which did see a few sailors testing the water. Phil Highfield (RS700) sailed consistently well opening up sizable leads in all races to claim three comfortable wins, only being pressed by Chris Sallis (D-One) in race one. In the second race the wind settled to a relatively steady F2-3 providing some close racing amongst the D-Ones and RS400’s, with Nick Favell(D-One) claiming second. By the time the final race started the wind had eased to a F1-2 and shifting between SW and WSW. With Phil sailing his own race the others enjoyed another close battle with only a few seconds between them. This time Dave Houghton, with guest crew for the day Tom Carr (RS400) claiming second. Thanks to Jamie, Nick and Lea for providing a good days sailing and looking after those who needed assistance. Results now on club website
