Andrew McGaw was in majestic form winning the 4th Chichester YC Hadron H2 Open meeting with three first places. With impressive speed particularly down wind he was a convincing winner.

Richard Anderton, race officer supremo, and his team managed the race track with clockwork efficiency and great attention to detail. A large number of club volunteers helped make the event run smoothly finishing with a superb tea.

Thank you to all for making it an afternoon to remember.
