Although the three Welsh Harp clubs which race GP14s on a Saturday were blessed this week with warm sunshine and a reasonable wind, Wembley Sailing Club, which races on Sunday morning, had the worst sailing conditions - pouring rain and hardly any wind.
This caused a very low entry of only 14 for the morning race, altxxxgh the end of the rain saw a small increase to 18 for the midday race.
Being a single-handed craft, the Laser is the one most affected by the weight of the helmsman, and it was not surprising that this was a day for the lightweights.
Dan Scott won both races, from Corbin Featherstone and Charmain Evangelides in the morning, with second and third places in the midday race going to Morgan Wyatt and Jane Hill.
The RS200 races were dominated by the Janering family. Robert, crewed by Marianthe Evangelides, won the morning race from his cousin Steve, crewed by Lottie Wakelin, who reversed these positions in the midday race. Julian Bradley and Lill Bates were third each time.
The top Merlin made a rare appearance, having decided that conditions would be even worse on the Thames for a Merlin event there.
Duncan Salmon and Ian Garwood won both races, lacking the usual competition from Colin Brockbank, who was witxxxt his usual crew.
However, Eve Bogucka still managed to help his boat into second place ahead of John Donoghue and Liam Smith.
In the midday race, Brockbank took pity on Richard Cooke, who had travelled from mid-Hertfordshire only to find his crew had not come, and together they scored an unopposed MRX win.
This helped Kieran O'Farrell, crewed by his 11-year-old son Fion, to score second place in the Merlins, ahead of Donoghue and Smith.
Ironically, by the afternoon, when racing was over, the rain stopped and the wind improved to benefit Wembley's juniors for their training session.
