There were two very different days of racing at Waveney & Oulton Broad YC.

On Saturday eight youngsters raced in the Topper and Optimist open in wet, overcast weather.

Honours were shared by Thomas Betts in the Toppers and William Pank in the Optimists.

Then on Sunday bright sunshine encouraged 10 dinghies and eight Squibs to race in a chilly breeze for the first day of the club’s winter season.

In the Fast Handicap fleet Richard Fryer and Carol Smalls in their RS400 were the first in both races but on corrected time Veronica Falat in her Streaker took the wins, with Duncan Madin’s K1 second.

In the Slow Handicap, Edward Nourse and Gordon Royall in a RS Feva won both races but George Madin in his RS Tera prevailed on corrected time.

Meanwhile Richard Sullivan and Sue Harper in Clever Dick won both Squib races.
