Welland Yacht Club’s fourth regatta of the season was won by Ros Nickols.

Nine boats took part in race one, again with two junior entries.

The boats soon picked up good speed with Nickols and Andy Agar breaking away from the main pack, leaving a mid group vying for position on the water with the odd gust providing near capsize moments for a few.

Result: 1 Nickols, 2 Agar, 3 Niall Holland, 4 Martin Cook.

Race two: 1 Nickols, 2 Emma Agar, 3 Paul Wilson, 4 Neal Tack & Rebecca Slator.

For race three, the rain that had threatened all day finally came down and with that the wind died, prompting a shortened course.

Ever searching for a patch of elusive breeze to maximise boat speed experience proved the key.

Result: 1 A Agar, 2 Tack & Slator, 3 E Agar, 4 Nickols.

Overall regatta standings: 1 Nickols, 2 A Agar, 3 E Agar, 4 Tack & Slator.
