‘We had a fantastic week of sailing with 10-15 knots breezes from the south-west, lots of sunshine and a sparkling sea – by the end of the week we were all looking a lot more tanned than at the beginning of the week. 23 boats entered and the racing was very exciting with lots of place changes up and down the fleet on most days.

Madeleine won on Monday. Astralita won on Tuesday and Thursday and Xcitation won on Wednesday and Friday. We had two visiting boats from Hamble – Swallow and Felix, both of whom were very competitive.

The overall winner was Astralita with 6 points, second was Xcitation with 10 points who just beat Swallow, who also got 10 points, to third based on the result of the last race’.
