The first day of racing on the Celebration weekend saw Colin Smith and his son James fittingly win the Paul Smith trophy in the Albacore.
Sunday's racing was epic. Only 6 Lasers and at times only 4 but the competition was enthralling in extremely gusty conditions. Colin Smith, who had won the Paul Smith race the day before in the Albacore, decided to sit out the first race. All competitors sailed Radial rigged boats and in races 2 and 3 Colin gave a master class performance in Laser sailing. Everyone who sailed did themselves proud and capsizes were the order of the day. Ben Skull eventually won the Jim Newbury trophy which is very apt as Jim taught him to sail when he was a youngster at the club.
