Sunday saw the final two races (5&6) in the personal handicap pursuit series at Welland Yacht Club.

With different winners in the first four races and the best four results counting, the series could be won by any number of sailors.

It was another brilliant day for the juniors with Emma Agar winning both races, testament to the club’s commitment to training the junior sector to be able to compete on equal terms with the adults.

Race five saw Tom Bell challenging for position with Will Cook and crew Emma Hill, eventually Bell prevailing for an all-important point advantage.

Race six had Martin Cook duelling with Brian Cobb for third, switching places three times.

Race five: 1 Emma Agar, 2 Shelley Woolridge, 3 Martin Cook.
