For the third week running, BASC sailors took a battering from the strong winds.
In the seniors, the gusty, warm southerlies kept the rescue boat busy by claiming Enterprises, but that didn't stop Mark Langston in his Laser keeping his Series A hopes alive by winning both races. N and A Shipley in a Norfolk and team Deller in their Ent had to settle for second and third respectively, leaving the RNLI Pennant Trophy wide open.
Hugh Braidwood in the Juniors confirmed the Poyser Cup remains his, with another double in his Oppie Smoke on the Water. B Ashcroft and R Gilchrist in their Toppers will be battling it out in the final week to see who secures second position overall.
The next day saw some more gentle breezes from the south-west while BASC hosted their annual open day. A steady stream of visitors enjoyed the excellent facilities, many of whom were taken out on the water by club members in Enterprises and Norfolks.
