Saturday 16th April saw the start of Parkstone’s Saturday Spring Series and 10 boats lined up to compete in a light to moderate NW wind. Race Officer Nick Cornish set a course taking all fleets to the Top Triangle to make the most of the prevailing conditions.
Dave Tabb and Chewey Sherrell made a bold start on port tack, which gave them a healthy lead at the first mark, a lead they would never relinquish. Back in the pack there was close racing with much place changing.
1st Dave Tabb and Chewey Sherrell

3rd Graham and Ben Scroggie
Special mention must go to Bob Alexander and Huw Willetts who managed to claim 4th place using thier new prototype small Jib which is designed for lightweight crews.
