ARDEN Sailing Club members enjoyed the bright and settled weather for their three-race August handicap series.

The first race saw the Streaker of Simon Newman lead the fleet while the Comet of Steve Trzoska and Heron of David Bryden duelled behind.

Bryden eventually took first place after handicaps were calculated.

In the second race the Enterprise of Niall Campbell went ahead and made the most of a stronger breeze to secure first with Bryden second.

Newman’s Streaker showed great form in the third race and the Solo of Steve Ryder also looked more promising.

But Bryden took line honours to win the race and the overall first position for the day.
