Fickle winds hampered the efforts of Welwyn Garden City Sailing Club in their latest round of races.
That is apart from Mike Caddy who stormed away to win both races in some style.
The inconsistency of the breeze was in sharp contrast to the strong winds of the week before but to some this was far more favourable.
The fleet was much reduced as more club members spent the weekend qualifying to drive powerboats or qualifying as dinghy instructors.
Much more interesting was the race behind Caddy for the other podium places.
In the slowest boat, Angelo Hansen kept in touch with the leaders in race one, picking up a good wind on the last lap to close the gap on Charles Adams and take second place on handicap.
He was again competing closely with the commodore in race two but he kept in touch throughout and this time he was able to go past Adams early on and stayed there for most of the race.
