Close racing at Rollesby
- Credit: Archant
A fairly small fleet, probably reduced by the light wind forecast, saw the fleets combined but led to close racing at Rollesby with a chance to recover positions always a prospect.
Race one saw a rare general recall and Ian and Sharon Ayres nailed the restart in their Leader and after some deft spinnaker work were far enough ahead that only Mike Broadbent and Hugh Rout in their ISO would pass them on the water.
John Saddington and Dennis Manning (Albacore) took second position on handicap.
In race two, Simon Strode in his Solo made the best start, with the Ayres' in close pursuit.
Saddington tacked off early into what looked a hole to everyone else; he collected his own puff off wind and was away.

The ISO did catch and pass him, but in the pack Chris Mann was showing the pace before Simon spotted a good shift on the final beat to give the Solos the minor places.
