Duo return with hat-trick
Bright sunshine and a good breeze greeted sailors at Buckenham Sailing Club on Sunday morning.
Mike Spencer and Sue Burrell, who had been away for a few weeks, came storming back and won all three races in their RS Vision, Natterjack.
There were retirements and capsizes in the first race and one sailor suffered the indignity of being towed back semi-submerged as he had forgotten to check his bungs!
It was a day for changing crews, as club members swapped boats, except for Natterjack. Griffin, a Leader, was sailed into second place by Jim Frost, crewed by Crispin Lambert in race two and into third place by owner Crispin in the third race.
Stephen Riley finished third in Phantom Skylark in race two and was second in race three, helming RS Vision Saphira, crewed by Yvonne Frosdick.
