May Day Pursuit Racing

Great to see sixteen boats competing in various classes for the May Day Pursuit races.

The races were run for GP14s, Lasers and a Menageries class with three Toppers also in the mix.

For the GPs the Simon Fletcher/ John Cookson boat fought it out with the Ralph Webb/ Mik Neville combo. Each had a first place but only Simon and John finished the third race to take the title.

For the Laser sailors Craig  Chadderton and Mike Dalziel contested the title with Alice Webb also picking up a first place. Eventually Craig got away in the third race and stayed in front to hold off Mike for the overall win.

In the Menageries class the Single Handed GPs raced for the title with Norman Quarry taking a first place in the first race with  Phil Quarry in second place. Jonathan Websdell won the second race with Phil Quarry taking second again. Both boats recorded four points and the title went to Jonathan based on the result of the second race ( Subject to ratification ).

The three Toppers of Matthew Chadderton, Josh Spokes and Charlotte Spokes battled it out for a Topper trophy. In some very tight racing Matthew won all three races and took the trophy.

A great day out !!
