Chaotic light winds and warm sunshine provided the backdrop for sailors in the two races at Arden Sailing Club, Defford on Sunday.

The first race was round 6 of the Pursuit series . Seven dinghy s started the challenging course set over an hour with the slowest going first followed by the rest in succession based on handicap. Result:  1st Niall Campbell (Enterprise - solo), 2nd Stuart Stephen (Enterprise - solo), 3rd David Yule (Heron), 4th Keith Stevens (Comet), 5th Ken Pinfield (Mirror) 6th David Stephen (Supernova). Malcolm Colledge (Comet) retired.  
With the wind conditions prevailing, the next race - Strensham stage 7 still went ahead but over a shortened course. 6 crews took part in the 3 lap race the winner of which is determined by whoever completes the distance in the quickest time after the application of handicaps.  So despite coming in 1st on the water and a clear 6 minutes ahead , Niall Campbell (Ent - solo) came 2nd overall behind David Yule (Heron) who came 1st.  3rd Stuart Stephen (Ent), 4th Malcolm Colledge (Comet), 5th Keith Stevens (Comet), 6th David Stephen (Supernova).
