Sunday B Series at Scarborough Yacht Club - Race 5

A total of ten yachts from three of Scarborough's four classes competed for success in Sunday morning's 09:30 race.

Racing had been delayed by 30 minutes to see if wind conditions would improve. With the breeze gently moving up to 3-10 knots, and some consideration about the risk of a low tide after two laps stranding some vessels, a single lap course passing buoys to port was selected.

As has been seen at Scarborough before, low winds benefitted certain vessel types, with several using their spinnakers to good effect.

Race 5 Results:

SYC Class

  1. Takaza, an ETAP 28i owned by Kevin Chatt
  2. Dash, a Sadler 34 owned by Martin Donnelly
IRC Class
  1. Kassy, a Hydro owned by Holder, Williamson, Hutchinson, and Stone
  2. Revenge, a Sigma 33 owned by Alan Smith and Steve Martin
  3. Zorra, a Link 30 owned by Jonathan Barker
  4. Rascal, a Sigma 33 owned by Mick & Fiona Mullane
707 Class
  1. A Grand Day Out, owned by Steve Bramham/Richard Littlewood
  2. Shameless, owned by John Parkes
