THE final weekend of Helensburgh Sailing Club's winter series was held once more in bright sunshine and a light to moderate breeze.

This had more than a few wholes and shifts to catch the unwary, sadly there was no sign of AJ, Paul Scutt and their knees this week but maybe once a year is more than enough.

Graham McCubbin carried on as he's done for most of the series and won both races sailing his Europe to take first place overall.

Paul Seamark and Ruairdh Campbell swopped second and third places in each race to take fourth and fifth overall. Neil Rosie finished second despite not sailing the last weekend having scored highly enough earlier in the series to hold on. The Topper class was a much closer affair Rory Kilgore and Jack Aitken tied for first place, Kilgore took first overall on count back.

Iain Symon finished third and Jake Miller a very creditable 4th finishing every race in the series despite being the youngest on the water by quite a long way.

With 30 entries for the series winter sailing alone, year round sailing is now a permanent fixture at HSC, there has been sailing every weekend since the end of January and plenty of people who want to go sailing.

A very busy season lies ahead with three big Regatta's plus the Sonata Nationals.
