Breezy but cold conditions greeted competitors for Sunday’s sailing at Welland Yacht Club.

Race one was the third round of the Morning points series which was won by the Laser of Tom Bell 15 seconds clear of the Phantom of Paul Burton, with Phil Robertson taking third place.

Junior Emma Agar finished the difficult course in sixth place which could have been much higher.

The afternoon races saw the culmination of the Munson Cup with races five and six.

Although Bell could only manage third and second, he still clinched the series by two points from Andy Prior. Third in the series went to Burton.

Individual race honours went to Burton and Prior.
