You know it's serious when who cooks dinner is based on your racing performance - another upside (or maybe downside) to virtual racing. Inter-house rivalry was less productive for some during an exciting virtual trip to Frensham Pond for some team racing, but it work out well for Richard and Alex Harrison, who teamed up with Will Carroll to finish 3rd.

This week, Will returned to his favoured livery of a pink unicorn, and in a scene that was more Wild West than West Worthing, he avoided the distraction of the two horses running riderless down his busy street. The Warrens - Alex and William, finally managed to emulate the Harrison family with a lockout at the top of the podium in the last race but the leaders are consistently Richard with Reuben Hudson in second and Megan Pascoe in third in series 1. Richard, followed by Will and Megan in series 2.

Richard's dominance means that he will represent the club In the RYA regional qualifiers to be held on Monday - the forecast looks pretty inhospitable right now, but we're confident it will be sunny and a nice for 4/5
