PUBLISHED: 07:00 20 February 2009 | UPDATED: 22:32 05 July 2010

THERE was a pleasant westerly wind blowing on Oulton Broad on Sunday, which led to some good racing.

There were 14 dinghies out in the first Fast Handicap race and the first four on the water were all RS designs, three 400s and a 500.

THERE was a pleasant westerly wind blowing on Oulton Broad on Sunday, which led to some good racing.

There were 14 dinghies out in the first Fast Handicap race and the first four on the water were all RS designs, three 400s and a 500.

Richard Fryer led throughout and finished a minute in front of Philip Highfield and two minutes in front of David Frary's Finn in fifth place but on handicap Fryer dropped to eighth while Frary moved up to a comfortable win.

Nearly another two minutes back in seventh place was Lloyd Crisp, the leading Laser, and he went up to second with Alan Cone third.

The Squibs had a tremendous race with plenty of place changing between the leading three and a really close finish. David Gooch and Sam Cole contested the leading places for two rounds with Jim Tubby never far away and he took the lead at the last gybe mark.

A bit of a luffing match ensued which allowed Sam Cole to narrow the gap and get close enough to snatch second place from Gooch.

The second Fast Handicap followed the same pattern as the first with the RS's out in front and David Frary back in fifth but again this was good enough to give him a win on handicap, this time with Andy Jarvis making a rare appearance in his National 12 taking second place as Richard Frary dropped to third.

The Squibs also repeated their finishing order from the first race although this time Jim Tubby was well in front of Sam Cole.
