|| Murray Hadden
Only two sailors turned up to compete in Thursday's Pursuit race at Forfar Sailing Club. Murray Hadden rigged his Laser and Jim Green his Solo to go head-to-head, albeit Jim had a two and a half minute start on Murray thanks to handicap difference.
Lasers typically struggle to keep up with Solos in light winds, and so in the light south- easterly breeze (and bright sunshine) Jim held on to his lead throughout the race, even extending it as the wind dropped towards the end of the 50-minute race.
