Better winds than forecast saw a good turnout at Welwyn Garden City Sailing Club for their latest round of races.
There were still big holes, pockets of windless areas across Stanborough Lakes, and those caught of half the fleet in race two.
But Annette Walter, back after attending open meetings, was not one of them.
She claimed the burgee award with two wins, the second of them by a whopping five minutes.
Race one was much closer with commodore of the club, Charles Adams, coming as close to beating her as he ever has done.
His second race ended with a 10th place but more consistent was Sheila Stowe who was second overall, after placing third and second, and Dave Lambert in third, a fourth place and a third his efforts.
Roger Morse was fourth ahead of a three-way tie for fifth between junior Angelo Hansen, Paul Lohr and Adams.
