15/16 May 2010
by Mike Edwards
A small but perfectly formed and competitive fleet arrived at MHYC for the open event. Racing on Saturday started in a perfect force 4 with good sized waves. Tight courses meant that boat handling came to the fore making the most of a good start Gavin Waldron developed an early lead. Downwind conditions allowed places to change throughout the race. Final positions were Waldron 1st, Tony Woods 2nd, Keith Byers 3rd
Race 2 – competed in similar conditions, with Waldron again forging an early lead which he maintained through to the finish, followed by Woods and Byers once again.
Race 3 – Byers took an early lead and was pushed all the way by Tony Woods and Waldron. Final positions: Byers 1st, Woods 2nd and Waldron 3rd.
The second day of this 2 day event was cancelled due to wind strength.Overall final results were:
- Gavin Waldron (South Staffs SC)
- Tony Woods (Etherow SC)
- Keith Byers (Morecambe and Heysham YC)
- Daz Prior (Morecambe and Heysham YC)
