Last Saturdays Beaver Sailing Club Streaker Open, the second in the northern paddle series, got off to a very light start. Following an early postponement by race officer Ollie Groves and Grandad Roy due to the light conditions, it was decided to have lunch which was expertly prepared by Team Penty.
The wind eventually decided to show up and a great afternoons racing was had by all much to the relief of the ROD.
As expected the racing was close and place changes were frequent for the 25 competitors with everyone falling foul of various wind direction changes at one point or another.
3 back to back races races were held, and whilst the winner never changed all other places were hard fought.
