Salcombe Merlin Week - Anyone of three for Title

The penultimate day's racing at Sharps Doom Bar Salcombe Merlin Week did not change the top 3 but the biggest climbers were Mike and Jane Calvert moving from 12th to 4th.

Andy Davis and Alex Warren took another win in their Green v Black flight race to discard a sixth.

Second were Dave and Oliver Winder with third Jon Turner and Richard Parslow and in fourth Simon Blake and Pippa Taylor, keeping themselves in contention for the title.

In the Blue v Red flights race, Mike and Jane Calvert took an important win, relegating Tim Fells and Frances Gifford to second and opening the gap to Davis and Warren to two points in the overall tile battle.

Going into the final day, Davis and Warren now have a two point lead over Fells and Frances Gifford who will be first up in the morning race, needing a win to put pressure on Davis and Warren.

Davis and Warren will then be taking on third placed Si Blake and Pippa Taylor and fourth placed Chrises Gould and Kilsby in the afternoon race to decide the title.
