Vicky Forkes clinched the Rose Trophy as St Edmundsbury Sailing and Canoeing Association hosted a ladies day at Lackford Lake.

In her Lark dinghy, Forkes got a blistering start in the first race and never relinquished her lead to finish ahead of Debbie Steele in her Byte CII and Fliss Elsom-Cook and Sheila Norman.

The second race saw Fliss Elsom-Cook firing at full speed off the start line but she was eventually caught by Forkes, Steele and Elsom-Cook.

Steele pipped Forkes to victory in the final race but it was the latter who claimed overall success.

Meanwhile, in the joint rankings, Mike Steele took two first places and Geoff 
Morris took a second place 
in the Mid-Season
