Despite the light airs on Belfast lough last Sunday morning for the fourth sailing race of the Mackey Eyecare Autumn Series, Ian Wilson and his crew had an impressive win in their Corby RESPECT. They were almost 12 minutes ahead of the second boat in the IRC class. Mark Ross's TROUBLE next with Donald McVicar in RATTLE 'N HUM third.
In the Sigma fleet start three of the five boats were over the line and this gave Paul Prentice in SQUAWK the opportunity to get clear and sail a great race to take an impressive first place. Burton Allen's STARSHINE CHALLENGER with Ken Green at the helm sailed a consistent race to take second place with BLUES creeping up to third place.
The RS Elites saw a welcome Australian visitor in the shape of Olympian, Russell McGovern at the helm of Fiona Hick's NO ANGEL. David Baird clung onto second place in JITTERBUG.
In the PY Whitesail class John Moorhead had a third successive win in MARGARITA.
