Apples Trophy & PRACC 5

With only six entries it still proved to be a very entertaining racing. The over cast skies soon cleared to give a bright sunny day. With the wind coming from ENE force two. This required some course changes by the race team of John Coster and Geoff Appleton. Racing started with the pattern for the day soon forming with Vernon Appleton of the home club and Ken Binks contesting the lead. Paul Wilson of Eastbourne finding himself in third place for most of the day. Fourth and fifth places were contested by Alan Oxlade and Joe Binks with some close racing. Lester Gilbert entered but was unable to sail.

As can be seen from the results the last race counted for the series as Vernon and Trevor were tied on fourteen. It was time to consult the Sailing Instructions to find the winner. Vernon had won by winning the last race. It would have been better to hold an odd number of races then it would have been decided on the water.
