Congratulations to Ken and Davy L who retain the Peace Bridge Trophy
A great race up and down. In the 5 minute pre race sequence there was no wind then more or less as the gun went the wind came and fairly strong at F5 and gusting. Welcome to Richard F and his dad who were sailing a Laser 2. (They have been awarded an LFYC PY of 1133 (the same as a GP)).

Kevin L and Nigel were sailing very well upwind as they went through the required 100 or so tacks through the narrows.

As Kevin L and Nigel came around the Peace bridge mark a big gust came and blew them, Richard F and Dad and Kevin T over. All recovered w4ell and sailed on. This incident gave Anton H and Mike M a chance to pull back a few places which they held onto on the run home.
