Sunday saw a very light breeze at Arden Sailing Club, Defford for the 4th race in the Spring Handicap Series with 8 boats taking to the water. 
Despite the breeze reducing just prior to the start, Ralph Evans (Solo) had a clean get away and managed to lead the race from start to finish.  Behind 3 Comets were  fighting to get around the first buoy,with Malcolm Colledge managing to edge forward, leaving Tricia Wood trailing behind and Terry Andrews eventually retiring.  
Meanwhile David Bryden (Heron) was sailing in clear air towards the middle of the pack followed by Kevin Powell in the Mirror.  Stuart and David Stephen, out testing a Laser Bahia also took part.  
The overall results after handicaps were taken into consideration:  David Bryden (Heron) 1st, Ralph Evans (Solo) 2nd, Malcolm Colledge (Comet) 3rd, Tricia Wood (Comet) 4th, Emma Williams (Laser) 5th, Kevin Powell (Mirror) 6TH .  Terry Andrews (Comet) and Stuart and David Stephen (Laser Bahia) retired.
