Triple Roll over on water

BECCLES sailors donned plenty of sun-cream as the hot sun beat down on the Waveney.Only the light easterly providing limited relief in the scorching temperatures so in some way the beatless course proved a welcoming minimum-effort day inevitably favouring the Norfolks in both their handicap races.

BECCLES sailors donned plenty of sun-cream as the hot sun beat down on the Waveney.

Only the light easterly providing limited relief in the scorching temperatures so in some way the beatless course proved a welcoming minimum-effort day inevitably favouring the Norfolks in both their handicap races.

In the Chinese handicap, Tankard and Brambling simply powered ahead through the long reaches past the clubhouse, easily taking first and second respectively.

In the Coronation Cup, again Rory Kelsey and Georgie Roll took another first in Tankard, this time on corrected-time as Richard Deller with crew Saskia Baylis in their Enterprise Cuddles crossed the line first, closely shadowed by Jonathan Blankley in his Laser. Kelsey and Roll went on to win the Norfolk challenge further into the afternoon completing a triple for them on the day.

Jake Shipley dominated this week in the Will Judge campaign with his Laser Sonic Screwdriver.

He crossed the line two minutes ahead of the next boat in, a Topaz Zenon crewed by Richard and Caroline Baylis.
