On the 20th May Chichester Yacht Club enjoyed a bright and breezy northerlies for this weekend's Solo and ILCA/Laser Open Races, bringing exciting conditions for both fleets.

In the Lasers those sporting the full sail worked hard at boat control as the gusts came swift and hard, and there was a clear winner in Adrian Lynham from Stokes Bay SC.

In the separate Solo series there was a very competitive set of finishes at the front with Alex Butler from Hayling Island SC taking the Cup. Solid work in both fleets, with Tim Blackmore in third place from CYC in the Solo Series.
