THERE was little win when the Royal Windermere Yacht Club’s 17 foot ‘Windermere Class’ fleet took part in their weekly race.

Racing was in doubt as the fleet headed towards the start line and the wind died completely but race officer Steve Bewsher saw the potential for very light breezes in the south lake and set a short windward leeward course.

But just as the one minute warning sounded prior to the race starting, the breeze died again and what little breeze remained changed to a north easterly direction.

The fleet drifted across the start line and sailed downwind to Cunsey but the wind filled up again and they enjoyed a beat back to Storrs.

With the breeze holding reasonably well, the fleet enjoyed a second good race in very warm conditions on Windermere.

Fathom, helmed by Graham Murray, held on to an early lead and finished first while Pilgrim, helmed by Dave Milburn, held off stiff competition from Atholl, helmed by Nick Aubrey to finish in second place.

The fourth and fifth positions were also closely fought, with Snark II, helmed by Les Gorton, taking fourth to edge out Mistral, helmed by Robert Slack.
