St Edmundsbury Sailing and Canoeing Association (SESCA) were back out on the water last Sunday competing at Lackford Lake.
Although much warmer than of late, there was a strong, shifty breeze across the lake, which provided some challenging conditions and good spectator entertainment.
Three races were held, with a mixed fleet of Lasers, Laser Radials, Vareo, Enterprise and Toppers venturing out on the water.
Persistence and perseverance were rewarded as Nev Boneham and Charlotte Norrbom, sailing their Vareo, were the only crew to complete all three races, despite several capsizes, earning them the first series win of the season.
This weekend, the Sea Cadets and the first Topper Team Race Training session will be held on Saturday, and the first three races of the Spring Series on Sunday.
