Madin leads all the way to win double

Last Sunday on Oulton Broad was another beautiful day for sailing, although in common with the last few weeks a bit more wind would have been appreciated.

In the first Fast Handicap race Duncan Madin, sailing his RS100, got everything right and pulled out a tremendous lead over Richard Fryer's RS400, leading from start to finish and being far enough in front to save his time by a minute and a half.

Veronica Falat in her Streaker managed to finish in front of some Lasers, which was good enough to move her up to second while David Frary took third place in his Finn.

To all intents and purposes the Squib race was decided on the start line as David Gooch and Gilly Foulds took an early lead from Jim Tubby and Richard Parker with Owen Delany and Tony Holman third as the race became something of a procession.

Duncan Madin repeated his big lead in the second Fast Handicap with the same result but this time Ben Falat took second place in his Phantom pushing David Frary back to third.

You may also want to watch:

Veronica Falat changed boats so she could sail in the Laser race which she won by moving up to the lead on the last round as Jonathon Jones dropped a place to beat Simon Marfleet.

David Gooch again cruised to an easy win in the second Squib race beating Peter Horton and Richard Thurston who themselves were well in front of Jim Tubby.
