The bimbling and banter in the boatpark sunshine of WPNSA was put on hold as the Peak-Ryzex sponsored Albacore Internationals, incorporating the UK Nationals, got underway in Weymouth.

53 sailors from the UK, USA, Canada, the Shetland and even Gozo were greeted with champagne sailing conditions, although the 20 knot breeze and choppy waves out in the bay caused plenty to be spilt!

Race 1 was won by Tom Lonsdale and Steve Graham with Ovington's Chris Turner and Alex Hayman close behind, followed by USA's Barney Harris and Dave Smith.

The top two reversed in Race 2, though this time John Greenwood and Alex Colquitt took 3rd.

At the daily prize giving the first tranche of Ovington Top Ten Hats were handed out along with a tally prize draw which included a new P&B jib!

Racing continues today, subject to the ability of some tired muscles to get into wetsuits!
