Double win for Graham at Burnham-On-Sea’s annual sailing regatta

Burnham-On-Sea yachstman Graham Wills and his crew were celebrating this week after clinching a double victory in the town’s annual Sailing Club Regatta.

Strong winds provided challenging conditions for the yachtsmen during the two-day event.

But Graham Wills and crewmembers Mike Connor and Ricky Topham onboard Swiftwind, pictured right, made light work of the weather to clinch first place on both days.

During the event, the yachts competed in force four winds which were gusting to force five – but the sea remained calm.

The racing was exciting and enjoyable for the competitors and many spectators who watched from the seafront.
