THE desire to watch England beat Ecuador in the World Cup was greater then the incentive to sail in a gentle south easterly breeze on Roswell Waters, on Sunday.

Only six boats competed in the two Handicap races, from which class results were extracted, so enabling an early finish to the sailing programme.

Gary Ungless in a Solo kept in close proximity to the leading Enterprises and even though he was second over the line he won on corrected time, by 77 seconds and 25 seconds respectively.

Seven-year-old Jordan Williams, crewing in an Enterprise for his father Greg, managed to notch his first line honours. They took the lead at the second buoy in the second race, by virtue of having an overlap on the two leading boats. After this they were never headed and extended their lead through-out the race.
