Llangorse Junior Sailors at Optimist Late Summer Championships

Optimist Late Summer Championships – Hayling Island

Top of the bill this weekend was the Optimist Late Summer Championship at Hayling Island where Guy and Huw Farmer were aiming to build on their impressive form in the class rankings this year.  Strong breeze on Friday night hadn’t cleared Hayling in time for the scheduled start on Saturday morning so a long postponement ensued before two very windy races later in the day.  Guy led Huw in the family head-to-head overnight, both well inside the top 100 in this huge fleet before more racing on Sunday brought younger brother Huw to the fore: A brilliant 22nd place in the last race of the day gave Huw the ascendency.
