EARLY morning starts and high pressure meant light winds for North Devon Yacht Club sailors at Instow last weekend. The Sprint 15 fleet had a good turnout of 15-plus boats. Barry Vincent proved invincible, taking first place honours with a faultless sail, closely followed by Steve Richardson and Pete Ewing. Newcomers Anthony Grey and Alix Raymont made their marks, finishing fourth and fifth respectively and Joe Armstrong at 70-plus is still sailing as competitively as ever, finishing sixth.It is now less than three weeks until the Sprint 15 Nationals, which will be sailed off Instow beach on the weekend of June 27 - 29. It promises to be quite a spectacle with more than 40 boats expected.
