Annette Walter was back to winning ways as the strong gusts of the previous week faded back to somewhat of normality.
Welwyn Garden City Sailing Club's Commodore Cup was fought over under blustery conditions but Walter had no such trouble in the more benign winds, picking up the overall win ahead of Roger Morse and Charles Adams the club's commodore.
Patrick Rohart, back from his summer in France, was a little rusty in race one but improved to a third place in the second race.
In the slow fleet, Al Jose challenged strongly in the first race but had to settle for third as Walter dominated while Morse was the clear winner in the fast competition.
Tied for second place were Tony Hale and Rohart with a second and third place each.
The racing in the Quba fleet was a Hansen family affair with a tie between Francis, who took the honours in race one, and Angelo who prevailed in race two.
