Dinghy stars turn out on Oulton

Chilly, grey conditions prevailed at Waveney and Oulton Broad Yacht Club at the weekend and numbers of competing boats were low.

However, the Fast Handicap racing on Saturday was contested by some of the club's best dinghy sailors, with Duncan Madin winning both races ahead of his main rival in the RS300s, Richard Fryer, and the Lasers of Alan Cone and Ian Turner.

Mark Duffield in his Broads One Design Moorhen, the newest boat in the fleet, won the afternoon's Mixed Keels race. In the Slow Handicap races, honours were shared by the 13 year old Nourse twins, James and Edward, who won a race each.

On Sunday only Squibs and Waveneys raced. Ian Moore's Capella overtook Dave Gentry's Quackers to win the Squibs, while Geoff Little in Naiad led throughout the Waveney race, but in the Mixed Keels, Quackers was dominant and gained a well deserved victory.
