Laser Home Counties Series at Middle Nene Sailing Club

by Simon Wigmore on 12 May 2007 6 May 2007

The latest round of the Home Counties & Eastern Region Laser series took place at Middle Nene Sailing Club on Sunday 6th May.

Commodore Kevin Whitmill was delighted to welcome eleven visitors who joined the club fleet members on what turned out to be a very testing day.

The first of three races started at 11.00am with the 15mph predicted wind some what stronger. After a brisk start Matthew Frary led the field followed closely by Jarvis Simpson. The field rounded the mark the two leaders pursued by in order Edward Harrison, Andi Riley, David Marks and James Cully. Yiannis Costopoulos and Simon Wigmore found the conditions difficult both testing there recovery from capsize. Matthew Frary kept his lead and finished ahead of the field.

The afternoon saw back to back races in 25mph winds which aided by excellent courses set by race officer David Brown saw some exciting racing and for the unlucky Graham Smith a shattered centre board after a collision.

The day finished as it started with the dominant Matthew Frary winning all three races and the overall event.
