Morecambe Sailing Club commodore John ‘Gibbi’ Gibbison was on top form for the club’s evening meeting on Sunday winning all three races.

Sailing his Laser, Gibbi beat David Edwards and Dyane Silvester’s Vago in the first race with Phil Chandler in another Laser second for the two following races on June 8.

Phil was also third in the first race, David and Dyane in the second race with Dave Baron, also in a Laser, coming in third in the third race.

Fine weather, light winds and a small tide made for a pleasant evening’s sailing.

Phil Shelling and Neil Ryder teamed up for rescue boat and officer of the day duties.

Morecambe Sailing Club is offering free sailing taster sessions as part of Morecambe Bay Water Fest on the weekend of 28 and 29 June 2014.
