Carter’s Top­per the ranks

Middleton Guardian - - BYGONE DAYS - SAIL­ING GRA­HAM KNOX

WHEN Club Com­modore Andy Carter takes to the wa­ter in a Top­per, his long ex­pe­ri­ence in these dinghies shows, as he won the sec­ond and third races on Sun­day.

Adam Din won the first race in a Laser and then raced, as crew, with Stu­art Bates in a Mer­lin Rocket. Their scores of sec­ond and third places in two races meant they were run­ners-up for the day.

Chris Massey, in his RS300, usu­ally out in front, came un­stuck in the third race with a course er­ror so was third placed over­all.

The clos­est rac­ing of the day, in the mod­er­ate and shifty north-west­erly wind was in the Ju­nior Top­pers. Here, Ja­cob Din looked to do best with a con­sis­tent fifth place in all three races, ahead of Jasper Bramwell. How­ever, in the third race, Jasper seized an op­por­tu­nity at the last round­ing mark to gain the in­side place and reach to the fin­ish a sec­ond or two ahead of Ja­cob.
