The individual pursuit race at SESCA on Thursday evening was replaced by a Topper race coaching session led by Mike Steele. The four sailors present were put through their paces in light winds on an upwind-downwind course – refining running, beating and mark-rounding skills. All agreed that the session had been very worthwhile.

On Sunday, club racing resumed with the Midsummer Madness series sailed in a very gusty and shifty Westerly breeze. The coached sailors showed they had retained the expert knowledge with Ellis Blackmore from Culford School, sailing a Topper, coming second to Mike Steele, sailing a Laser, in the Club Pursuit Race. The overall prize for the day’s racing was won by Mike Steele with three first places, with the steady pairing of Carl Day and Alan Shaw, in their Enterprise, coming second
