It was a warm weekend for Horning Sailing Club’s activities on 13/14 August, with racing on the River on both days. Saturday afternoon saw the continuation of the Club’s informal Sundown Series in a pleasant breeze. A mixture of dinghies and keelboats took part, enjoying the opportunity to cool down on the water. Sunday saw the first week of sailing after Regatta Week, with turnouts a little diminished due to the heat. With not much wind forecast and the flags not moving on arrival, there were fears that racing would be little more than a drift but, thankfully, as the morning series began, a breeze kicked in, meaning that on the water was a great place to be. The morning Reedling race was won by Robert Hancock sailing Siskin, with Kevin Saunders in Cockatrice second. First Yeoman in both of the morning series was Toby Fields in Tanskey, ahead of Geoff Stubbs in Tara and Caroline Johnson in Cornelian. In the first race, winning Yare & Bure was Clive Gardner in Hairstreak, with Rosy Wave (Alastair Fields) second and Jasper Copping (Scarce Copper) third, Rosy Wave winning the second race. The dinghies were the strongest fleet of the day, with William Woolston winning the Allcomers B in his Laser Radial, Harrison Ryder second (Splash) and Tallulah Burr (Splash) third. Amongst the Toppers, Anya Gittins was first, followed by Lily Herring then Jasmine Herring. The second race saw William win with Tallulah second and, in the Toppers, Anya win and Lily second. By the afternoon the heat had got the better of the majority of the fleet, although some continued to race, particularly the Yeomans, with Toby taking his third win of the day.
