2012 Burnham-On-Sea Regatta sails to success despite poor weather

Burnham-On-Sea's annual sailing regatta ended on Sunday evening (July 1st) after a weather-interrupted fortnight.

The stormy conditions meant the number of races taking place in Bridgwater Bay over the past two weekends was cut - but there was still some keen competition.

The event ended on Sunday evening with a traditional presentation at Burnham Sailing Club where first place was shared jointly between Andy Walker with the yacht Merlin and Geoff Tanner with Melody.

The handicap race was won by Andy and Sue Walker on Merlin, with Geoff Tanner on Melody in second and Rod Southwell on Walrus in third.

The pursuit race was won by Geoff Tanner on Melody, followed by Rod Southwell on Walrus, while D Jackson was third on Super Saphire.

A spokesman said there had been close competition despite smaller fleets caused by the poor weather.
