The sun shone and the breeze filled in nicely for Horning Sailing Club’s return to racing on Easter Sunday. After a year of curtailed activities, the Club is endeavouring to have a normal sailing season and it began in earnest, with close to perfect conditions on Hoveton Little Broad. A warm day with a moderate SW breeze greeted competitors, with the Club trialling a new back-to-back race series for the first time. For some, it was their first time on the water in some 18 months, so the day provided a gentle introduction to being back on the water. That said, racing was still competitive, particularly amongst the Rebels and Dinghies, with Kevin and Jo Edwards in Rebel Maid taking two wins, and Kim West and David Pritchard one win in Rebel. In the dinghies, it was incredibly close between the Lasers of brothers Edward and Thomas Wildman and Jack Barnham, just seconds separating their finishes. Eventually it was Edward who took all three wins, despite close competition. Entertainment was provided in between races as Jack’s puppy joined him on the Laser planing up and down the Broad! Roger Pettit took three wins in the Yeoman fleet, with Robert Hancock achieving the same in the Reedlings. Encouragingly, all competitors stayed for the full programme in the series before returning home. Next week (11th April) sees a return to racing on the River.
