After a week off from handicap racing for the first round of the Pursuit Series for 2019 Girton saw 11 different boats on the water across the day in good winds. Steve and Alan Bishop (both Solo) shared the wins between them. Eddie Johnson (Supernova) was a solid 3rd each all three races. 4th & 5th shared between Matt Kirman (RS300) and Dave & Jean Read (Miracle) both crews racing for the first time this season.

A difficult day for the Girton Sailors who risked the forecast of high winds! Only one race sailed with a disappointed Jo Daubney failing to finish from the lead after a capsize on her third and final lap in deteriorating conditions robbed her of the bullet!
