by Simon Maskell 12 Oct 2017 11:41 BST 30 September 2017

On 30th September ten visitors joined twelve home boats for the Solo open meeting at Hunts Sailing Club. Competitors were greeted with sunshine and a light to moderate breeze.

Race Officer Duncan Wisbey and his team had their work cut out with a shifting wind. Despite this, excellent courses were set throughout which included three beats in each race, allowing for competitive sailing amongst the whole fleet.

Final results showed Simon Maskell coming out on top, beating brother Mark into second, with Steve Ede in third place.
