This weekend"s Glyn Charles Memorial Pursuit Race, run by Hayling Island Sailing Club on Saturday 17 June, was an absolute classic, with 120 dinghy and keelboat entries enjoying closely fought racing around Chichester Harbour? (SailWorld).Sarah Martin & Nicola Groves led the group of ten 29ers, while James Peters & Oli Spensley-Corfield were runners-up in the junior (u16) division. Some great 29er photos at:http://www.sailshots.co.uk/Glynncharles/index.htmlThis annual event is run in memory of Glyn Charles, one of Britain"s greatest sailing talents, who was tragically lost in the 1998 Sydney Hobart Race, and to raise funds for the John Merricks Sailing Trust, set up following the death of Glyn"s great friend John Merricks in a car accident in 1997.

A close fought final race gave the 3 race event to Sophie & Andy, by 1 point from Henry & Dicken. For full event results (and Grand Prix series results to date) - see Events/Results page.
