Easter Bonnet - 12 April 2015

Clevedon Sailing Club’s 2015 season opened last weekend with the Easter Bonnet held on Sunday. Only 6 boats turned out on the day, probably due the gale warning forecast the previous evening. Competitors were not disappointed and the 3 races were held in strong south westerly winds. Race 1 saw Stuart Turner in the Laser Radial not far behind the faster Phantom of Phil Isaac and D-Zero of Robin Goff beating them both on handicap. Both Isaac and Goff capsized at the gybe mark in race 2 and after difficulties righting the boats decided to join the Vision of Martin and Monty White ashore. Turner went on to win with Gibson, who had also capsized, just behind him. Only the 3 Laser Radials of Turner, Baker and Gibson were left for race 3 with Gibson leading from start to finish.
