Although several members were away sailing at events at both Oulton and Barton Broad over the last few days, there was a good turnout for Horning Sailing Club’s racing over the Bank Holiday Weekend. Saturday saw the conclusion of the Club’s informal Sundown race series, which has grown in popularity during the season, whilst Sunday saw racing continue on the River Bure outside the Clubhouse. Both the wind and busy river proved challenging for competitors, but enjoyable nonetheless. Fitting with the predominant winds experienced this season (northerly), particularly once amongst the trees above the broad entrance, the conditions became light and fluky upriver, but gusty and much stronger on racing reach, keeping racing lively for competitors. In the Reedlings, the first race saw the lead change several times before a photo finish, Robert Hancock in Siskin making the most of a last minute gust to finish one second ahead of Stuart Bailey’s Jaws. Gerry Hermer in Rebel Sailor won two races in the Rebels, whilst Kevin Saunders achieved the same in the Yare & Bures (Silver Cloud), the remaining race won by Jeremy Tusting in Brimstone. All three Yeoman races were won by Geoff Stubbs sailing Tara, with Paul Clarke (Two C Sons) taking two second places, and Toby Fields in Tanskey also receiving a second. The ever-enthusiastic dinghies were the last fleet standing by the final series, with plenty of capsizes in the increasing breeze keeping the rescue crews busy! In the Allcomers B, the Splashes of Harrison Ryder and Lewis Green battled it out, with Lewis winning the first race, the remaining three going to Harrison, whilst in the Toppers, Zia Gittins won two races, the remaining going to William Woolston and Hamish Harmer respectively.
