While Neil Collingridge and Anne Spalding were putting up a spirited defence of their Easterns’ title at Waldringfield only to be pipped by our reigning National and European Champions, Michael and Simon, there were  a few Wayfarer sailors racing at their home clubs.

No one went out at Parkstone but inland at Haversham Phil and Clare East won the handicap race.  At Shoreham the Saturday winds abated by Sunday and Bill and Lisa Whitney were the only Mark IV sailing: winning both handicap races .

West Oxfordshire held two pursuit races and Sue and Richard Burton finished in the top third of the fleet overall with a fourth and a sixth place .

No open meetings this weekend so hopefully there will be bigger turn-outs at the various clubs !
