Bristol Corinthian Yacht Club members were greeted by a cold, windy day for the annual Easter Egg Series.

Another cold, windy day greeted the sailors at Bristol Corinthian Yacht Club on Cheddar Reservoir for the annual Easter Egg Series.

Conditions ranged from bright sunshine to showers, hail and even a purple rainbow, with winds remaining fresh throughout, heralding the arrival of storm Katie, that luckily did not come in fully until everyone had packed up and gone home.

Steve Bolland led the field in his RS300, with three wins from the four races. Second and first lady helm were Izzy Savage and Paul Williams, getting some useful training in ahead of the RS200 Ugly Tour event that will be hosted by the club on Saturday.

Also in training were six Enterprise sailors, getting some close, tactical racing (and for Phil and Akshan some capsize recovery) practice in preparation for the prestigious National Inland Championship which will be hosted by BCYC in May.
