Friday, June 6, 2014 - 12:00

SAILING
THERE was all to play for in a dramatic race series for the RYS Sir Kenneth Preston Trophy.
Difficult conditions greeted the 13-strong Etchells fleet sailing off Hillhead in The Solent for the six-race series.
By the final race, any one of four boats could win the regatta — Tim Springett’s Highlife, David Frank’s Elvis, Richard Burrows’s Matatu Dubh or Robert Elliott’s Time and Tide.
Starting under black flag, Highlife — keen to make up for the previous race’s did not finish — were disqualified and sent back to port for their second early bath of the day.
Elvis won the pin and led throughout to take the race win, and also win the Sir Kenneth Preston Trophy, from Matatu Dubh second and Time and Tide third.
