Sunday started with a promising breeze but by the time the race got under way the conditions had got pretty funky with localised shifts and pressure all over the reservoir.  Chris managed stand on from the start into a line of left hand pressure that  he and Paul pulled away in.  As the race progressed conditions got trickier and Paul who was having a great race got hung out to dry as the left-hand side glassed out and pressure came in from the right. This let Terry move through to 2nd but Chris had enough of a lead to get down to the finish and take the win.

With conditions not looking like improving the fleet had a quick on the water meeting and decided to head for the comfort of the club house.  Everyone enjoyed a great event and had all benefited from some early season fleet racing.  The Italian Nationals are being held at Santa Margherita Ligure near Portofino at the end of the month for those who fancy a weekend away and the next UK Travellers Trophy is at POSH on the 6th and 7th of May before the fleet heads for Lake Balaton in Hungary for the Gold Cup at the end of May
