PUGNEYS Pirates’ raid on the RYA North Zone Team15 Inter-Club Windsurfing Championship title continued at pace with another great result in the third round.

The Wakefield team won three out of four classes of the competition held at North Lincs and Humberside Sailing Club.

The hosts claimed the top three places in the 3.5m standings but Pirates plundered the other classes.

Thomas Sambrook won six of the nine races to top the 4.5m list while brother and sister Oliver, 15, and Fiona Anderson, 13, came first in the 5.8m and 6.8m classes respectively.

Pirates are on track to retain their RYA Zone title with only the final round, at Pugneys Country Park, on September 16, left to be contested.

The zone winners will then go head-to-head for the Team15 Champions Cup in the national final.
