A fresh west-northwest breeze with occasional force six gusts combined with a high flood tide on the Waveney gave excellent conditions and helped most helms around the three lap course in under 30 minutes at Beccles ASC.
Ryan Langston with Amy Hewitt in the RS200 SmartRS remained ahead of Harry Shipley throughout the first race, finishing first by only three seconds, the win going to Shipley on corrected time with third to Mark Langston in his Lightning.
Richard Lewis with Tim French in their Kestrel led the fleet for two laps off a better race two start. Shipley was over but quickly recovered giving good chase to Jon Blankley and Sophie Manders in the RS200. Teenager George Curtis with dad as crew in Penelope Jane also had a near perfect start, remained clear of trouble for three laps and sailed well enough to collect a second behind another Shipley win with Blankley and Manders third.
