Consistency key as Martin wins the night in a Solo.

Wednesday 9th May

Another good turnout for Wednesday night racing, with some close racing throughout. We continued with the format of two short races this evening and overall Martin Brennan sailed a Solo very well to claim two 3rd places take the overall win. We had two different race winners, Adam McGovern & Dave Fisher in a GP14 won the first race with Chris Massey in his RS300 taking the win in race 2. Next up is Friendly Friday with rescue on the water from 1830.

The overall series results for both the Wednesday night series and the Spring Series have been update and can be viewed at: www.hlsc.org.uk/club-racing-results/
