In champagne sailing conditions 15 dinghies competed in the annual Black Rock race last weekend. Enjoying the fresh breeze and bright sunshine Phantom sailor Gareth Griffiths made the early running to the Brighton Marina turn bouy. However, he tired on the return leg to Shoreham which let through veteran 505 team Peter Bennett/Andy Phillips to win , Alan Chaplin/Phil Ayton Wayfarer 2nd & Steve Popple Phantom 3rd. Grateful thanks to Principal Race Officers John Redman, John Pryke and their excellent support team.
