Blustery conditions dominated the racing at Welwyn Garden City Sailing Club - with staying upright sometimes the key to victory.

There were plenty of interesting moments for the helms, with Charles Adams, commodore of the club, among those who saw his chances of a much-better result hindered by a capsize.

One person who had no such worries was Annette Walter who sailed serenely through to win both races, even having time to flash a smile at Val Newton, the club photographer.

Roger Morse and Dave Lambert were tied for second overall as was Adams, his second place in race one proving crucial in the overall standings.
