First published in Sport

DOUBLE success welcomed Ian and Jennie Jakeways onboard their boat General Khaos on Friday and Saturday at Mylor Yacht Club.

The couple claimed wins in the E class of the first Mylor Chandlery and Rigging series race of the year before returning the following day to pick up the spoils again in the Ellis Wharton Wines Bay series.

Friday's race saw light but variable breezes welcome crews among the four classes taking to the waters with a short triangular course set up by race director John Bramley.

The Jakeways were able to build up a healthy lead early on to help secure an easy victory.

Second place was a closely fought battle between Jack Penty on Dehler 36 Noon Hi and Alex Davis onboard Contessa 28 Tressa of Lymington. Their contest was won in the end by Penty by just one second.

In the U fleet, Mary Boon came first at the hands of John Cruise getting home about 100 seconds ahead of Jon Myers' Sadler 25 Tomaray, with third place going to Twister Nirvana captained by Mike Biglin.

Clive Hoyle onboard the Hunter Europa Rococo romped to victory in the Q class after building up a five minute lead over Westerly Merlin Chalonnaise, manned by Steve Pendray and Finoa Pascoe. MG Spring 25 Mara came third with Martin Wilson at the helm.

Michael Wilson won the H fleet race comfortably onboard Shrimper Henrietta while Richard Lewis claimed second place on Shrimper Pelican and third went to Cape Cutter Nettie which was manned by Richard Rickard.

On Saturday the first of the Ellis Wharton Wines Bay series for 2014 kicked off with six competitors racing up to the Manacles Buoy and back.

Once again General Khaos proved to be the fastest boat as it sailed in to victory for the second time inside 48 hours.

Cruise single handily brought his Mary Boon boat into second place about 900 seconds behind the winners while Myers who was joined by his son Ed this time round onboard Sadler 25 Tomaray came in third.
