Merlin Rocket Nationals - Fortune favours the brave

Just the one race completed Wednesday in gusts up to 29 knots at the Merlin Rocket Nationals! But the result was familiar, a win for Nick Craig and Alan Roberts.

This fourth win allowed Craig and Roberts to discard their worst race - a 2nd - and take a six point lead over Andy Davies and Alex Warren who finished 12th.

In third place overall are Chris Gould and Chris Kilsby (4) who move one point ahead of Sam Pascoe and Megan Pascoe (3).

Moving into fifth overall are David Hayes and Jonny Ratcliffe who took a storming second place behind Craig and Roberts.

Almost half the fleet did not compete/finish the Silent World Trophy race on HD Sails Wednesday.
