Overy Staithe Sailing Club's 2024 season continued this weekend with two races held on Saturday 13 April. One of these had been postponed from the previous week when wind conditions were unsuitable for racing.

There were some cracking reaches with a force 3 south westerly and committee boat starts. Alex Scoles was burning round in his Europe with OKs snapping at his heels. Debs Crissell was having her first race in her new Synergy Marine Europe. Both races were scored using personal handicaps.
