Grey skies and light winds provided rather dull conditions for racing at Waveney and Oulton Broad Yacht Club on Sunday.

But despite getting little help from the weather 18 boats took part and some had a very successful day.

Ian Keely and Pete Matthews in Squibbo won the first Squib race and were second in the next. Similarly Ben Falat, sailing his Phantom, was second in the first Fast Handicap and first in the next.

Meanwhile, James Nourse, in a club Wanderer, won both Slow Handicap races.

Some of the regular sailors travelled to Norwich Frostbite Sailing Club competing for Waveney and Oulton Broad Yacht Club in the annual team match and, for the first time in several years, won the trophy.

As a forerunner to its winter series, Rollesby Broad SC held its Winter Regatta on Sunday, with sailors having to contend with some light and shifty winds as they battled for the trophies.
