Sailing: Richard Marsh leads latest races

Date published: 05 December 2018

Keen sailors were not put off by the rain on the penultimate Sunday of racing for the year on Sunday (2 December 2018).

It was Richard Marsh's (RS200) turn to lead in each race, with daughter Lauren for the first two and Jasper Bramwell for the third one. The wind was gusty at times and they were caught out within a short distance of the finish line and capsized, but righted quickly enough to still hold the lead.

Martin Brennan in his Solo was runner up on the day, though Bruce Mager and Craig Jowett (Merlin Rocket) scored second in the first race.

Colin Knott and Richard Long (GP14) sailed consistently for third place overall.
