18 races were sailed on the Little Broad at Filby, hosted by The Broads Model Yacht Club.
Racing started in a very light wind from the North, which is the most favourable direction at Filby, but veered towards the east in the afternoon. There were 3 different race winners, during the day, but Colin Goodman (Grunge), Duncan Ellis (Grunge) and Vinnie Zammit (Starkers Cubed) gradually established a lead over the remainder of the fleet.
In the end Colin’s consistency won the day, after some very close and competitive racing. Colin has now established a big lead in the GAMES series, but the other podium positions and improver’s prize are still to sail for in the remaining 2 events at 3 Rivers and Guildford Model Yacht Clubs.
