UK's top sand yachting enthusiasts breeze into Brean

Thirty of the UK's leading sand yachting enthusiasts were in action on Brean beach at the weekend.

Strong onshore winds on Saturday and Sunday provided ideal weather conditions, helping them to flash across the sand at speeds of up to 60mph.

Among them were Brean Land Yachting Club members Ron Frewin, Caroline Heart and Neil Penhall, pictured above, who performed well.

Ron told "We had brilliant conditions over the two days and it was good to see land yachters from across the country taking part."

"We were competing against enthusiasts from as far afield as York. It's been a great weekend and we were delighted that the Brean yachters won several places."

Class 3 was won by Steve Borrill, second was Gary Cavelero and third was Christine Heath. The Class 5 competition was won by Roger Leah, second was Mark Sidey and third was Rob Collins, while the standart class was won by Rhys Davies, second was Ron Fewin, and third was Neil Penhall.
