In a heavy swell though light winds, six yachts were in the winning ranks in this 11:00am start. Team Zorra, a frequent Yacht Club winner stayed on top in the contested IRC race.

The IRC class contestants were racing for the Dearden Stag trophy and SYC class for the Sextant trophy as well as series points. The race finish was tight, with wih Vado 18 seconds behind Kassy, and Ruffian 2 seconds behind Vado.

Trophies will be presented at the Annual Dinner Dance at the Royal Hotel Scarborough on 9th November. Because the IRC race permits most vessels to enter, with handicapping based on hull, keel, sail measurements, and weight of the yacht, a mix of yachts can enter, and winners are influenced by a mix of tide, wind, and on-board skill. Weather was a light breeze and the left over of a Northerly swell. Sunday's turnout was good.

There were however two other races made up of 707 and Sonata yachts. Grand Day Out was the 707 winner and Zeris the Sonata winner. Series Results:

IRC Class
1st, Zorra, a Link 30, owned by Jonathan Barker
2nd, Kassy, a Hydro, owned by Holder, Williamson, Hutchinson
3rd, Vado, an Aphrodite owned by Steve and Win Russell
4th, Ruffian, a Sigma 36, helmed by Emma Nutt

Dash, a Sadler 34 owned by Martin Donelly

Sonata Class
Zeris, owned by Brian Sizer

707 Class

The Yacht Club congratulates Jonathan for his IRC win, Brian for Sonata, Bruce and Matt for the SYC result, and Steve and Richard for coming first in the 707 race.
