Lark Nationals Report Day 5

Simon Cox - 17th August 2006

The penultimate day of the 2006 Lark Nationals delivered light winds a small swell. Ideal conditions for the light weights in the class!

Fran Gifford & Sophie Macklay sailed an immaculate race to be suprise winners from Sarah Richards & Nigel Wakefield and Matt White & Claire Styles in third. Championship contenders Alan Krailing & Edd McArdle and Chris Fish & Beth Condie both had a tough day to finish outside the top 10.

Overall Alan & Edd still lead but now from Sarah & Nigel, Nigel Hufton & Chris Whitehouse and Chris & Beth have dropped to fourth. It is very tight at the top with a number of boats capable of taking the championship.

In the Silver Fleet, Glen & Marion Enkel lead from Helen Scott & Chris Robinson by 1 point. In the Bronze fleet Katharine Sampson & Ally Dart have a healthy lead due there excellent start to the week.

We are now all preparing for the fancy dress night which this year is "Pirates of Penzance". With light winds forecast again tomorrow we can expect a VERY big night tonight!

Full results are now available on the Lark Website results page.
