Solos deliver a one two

Phil Philpot and Adam Mason delivered their emphatic 1-2 on a gusty Easter Saturday’s Henry Cowls sponsored race. Phil normally a successful RS400 helm – perhaps in premonition – borrowed his father’s Solo. A very wise choice as it turned out with both RS400s routed. The Red hulled RS perfectly matched the facial colour of its crew Ollie Berryman & Ed Bolitho as they broke surface from the only capsize of the day. Despite ganging up on the Solos the Lasers of Andy Biggs and Stephen Brooks were unable to make headway. Solo near, yet Solo far.

Average lap race accounting whilst demanding of logistics and support is deemed fairest to PY dinghy competition. A great credit to all those behind the action for selflessly putting themselves forward for duty
