THE final races of the six race series of the First Sunday Series club competitions at Castle Cove Sailing Club were held last Sunday. Sailing conditions were excellent, with winds in the range 10 to 15 knots.

In the Fast Handicap dinghies competition, there were 17 boats taking part in one or more of the six races.

It was a close-run thing for first place but Nick Orman, in a Phantom, just pipped Mike Robins in a Scorpion.

In the Asymmetrics class, Oliver Fellows and Will Adler in a 29er were the clear winners from Jon Jenkins and Ian Hunter in an RS 200.

Fellows and Adler were first in all the races they entered.

There were nine competitors in this class.

Finally, in the Slow Handicap Dinghy class, there were 12 competitors and Jon Emmett was the winner with last year’s winner, Steve Green, in second place.

Both were sailing Laser Radials.

Emmett did not compete in the last race, winning the Sunday Series based on discards having won four of the six races.

Instead, he was in Roses, Spain, where he won the European Apprentice Masters Laser Radial competition, a major achievement.
