A fleet of fourteen Streakers turned up for Greensforge Sailing Club's fifth annual Streaker Open meeting at Calf Heath Reservoir, just south of Stafford on Saturday 28 April.

Race one saw Ian Bradley (Ouse ASC) and Jonny Shuster (Deben YC) break away after the usual melee at the first mark with John Burgoine (Tamworth SC) taking up third. There was a lot of bunching of the rest of the fleet and this soon caused inevitable excitement when criss-crossing the figure of eight course. In the end Ian held on for first, John came up to second and Dave Shuster emerged out of the pack to take third.

Race two had a tighter start line and some good gusts made for a tricky beat, and a far trickier run that sorted the men from the boys. John Burgoine came through to win with Ian Bradley and Jonny Shuster following.

At the start of race three John Burgoine adjudged himself over the line and came round again, but honesty clearly pays and he worked his way up to third place. The lead boats formed a procession a full leg apart from each other with Ian Bradley and Jonny Shuster taking the top two places.

Overall Results:

1st Ian Bradley (Ouse ASC) 3pts
2nd John Burgoine (Tamworth SC) 3pts
3rd Jonny Shuster (Deben SC) 5pts
4th Dave Shuster (Deben SC) 8pts
