GUNFLEET Sailing Club held their annual regatta with two action-packed days of events.

Thirty cadets and otters took part in a race for the Cadet Day Trophy.

Powering into an early lead were Conor Williams and Dominic Milham, in their Hobie 405.

However, they were pushed hard by cadet commodore Robert Gutteridge, in his Laser. Harrison Smith and Mac Symmonds were an early casualty in their Topaz, after capsizing in the fresh winds, but they soon had the boat upright again.

In the Toppers it was Zak Kurtulus who led the way, pushed hard by Harry Swinbourne.
