Victory in the first Lake Handicap of the year went to Glyn Sawford, three whole minutes ahead of his handicap time in conditions that could charitably be described as “refreshing”. Newcomer Marc Foulder was second and Victoria Webster third. Oliver Matharu was fastest round the course in 15:58. It’s early days yet and there’s plenty of time to improve your time over the summer.
The next race is on Monday 15th July.

Congratulations to Joon Ho, winner of this year’s Lake Handicap series.
On an unusually still night, Victoria Thurlby made up just one place to stay in second and Clare Ablethorpe moved up to third. Suze Moore was first across the line and Oliver Matharu set the night’s fastest time with an excellent 15:40.
Race 3 and full series results
Congratulations to Shaun Cross, first across the line on a humid, windy night that made for challenging conditions and unusually, almost half the field were outside their handicap time. It was tough out there. We even tempted the heavens to open briefly as we sat down for the club photo.
