Solo Open at Dell Quay SC

 
Nick Bonner of Hayling Island SC was winner of the Solo Open meeting at Dell Quay SC on Saturday 2 June.

Eleven Solos from the host club joined 19 visitors from clubs as far away as Salcombe and Weymouth.

Race 1 was a win for Nick Bonner after sailor Mark Harper went ahead at the windward mark, but then proceeded to have a major navigation failure and missed the spreader mark and had to beat back and re-round dropping him down the fleet.

Second was Nigel Thomas (Hill Head) and Simon Derham (Littleton SC) third.

In Race 2 Harper (now in the over 60’s Grand Master class) started right by the committee boat end, tacked right, and was gone - and was last seen at the finish three laps later.

Second was Fraser Hayden (Papercourt SC) and 3rd Nick Bonner.

In the final race Bonner was over the line and failed to return, leaving the rest of the pack to fight it out. Andy Wyland (Lymington Town SC) took the win, with second Andrew Boyce (Papercourt SC) and third Hayden.
