Neil Tack and Andy Prior won the first races in Welland Yacht Club’s new personal handicap pursuit series.

Tom Bell was runner-up in his first race appearance of the season following injury.

Four boats took to the water, including junior Rosie Willerton, for the morning points race.

Prior took the win from Bell, Geri van Haren in third and Willerton fourth.

In a pursuit, handicaps are applied to the race duration at the beginning to give staggered start times for each of the competitors.

Once the race duration is over, position on the water is the result.
