The Phil Plant all-comers race at Waveney and Oulton Broad Yacht Club attracted 24 boats.
The leaders around the course were Jamie Freeman (RS300) and Ben Falat (Phantom) while the Oulton Rater Catastrophe, sailed by Jordan Levett and Kyle Beamish, pulled through to third place just ahead of Duncan Madin’s K1.
However, on corrected time, it was Veronica Falat’s Streaker that took the win, ahead of Richard Smith (Laser) and Madin. Of the five traditional keelboats in the fleet, the first was Waveney Naiad sailed by Geoff Little and Sue Harper. George Madin in his RS Tera Pro was the leading junior.
The Squib race on Sunday saw the fleet spread out with Crazy Diamond sailed by Joe and Marc Moncrieff finishing well ahead of the rest. Meanwhile the Waveney race was a much closer affair with Naiad winning ahead of Simon Marfleet’s Iris. In the Mixed Keels race Iris finished first.
