Windsurfing twins' victories in vain as title heads east
SWANSEA windsurfing twins Will and Ieuan Lambert claimed victories as their Mumbles Mutineers team missed out on the Welsh title by a whisker.
The pair claimed top spot in the 4.5m and 3.5m classes, Ieuan winning all six races in the fourth and final event of the Welsh Team 15 Inter-Club Championships, while Will won four and was second in the other two.
The Mutineers missed out on representing Wales in the T15 Champions Cup Finals, against the top clubs from around the UK next month, by the narrowest of margins as Gwent club Reservoir Dogs won the final event on home waters at Llandegfedd, which acted as a tie-break for top place.
It was an exciting climax to a season of racing which has seen record numbers taking part in e T15 windsurfing in Wales, with all participants enjoying their time on the water learning a new skill.

It was a family affair for both the Mutineers and the Dogs, with twins Will and Ieuan Lambert competing in the 3.5m and 4.5m classes of windsurfing for the Reservoir Dogs and brothers Jake and Dylan Chase in action for the Mutineers with Dylan winning on a Techno 6.8 and younger brother Jake second in the 3.5m class.
Newcomers Jake Smallwood and Dale Jones were also worthy of special mention in the 3.5m class. Rory Jackson of the Mutineers claimed the 5.8 class.
"It was a fantastic day's racing, it was good to see a record number of competitors and also great to see three teams battling it out for the Welsh title this year," said T15 co-ordinator Stuart Meese.
"The team tactics of Mumbles Mutineers placed them in good stead to win the series trophy with Swansea Watersports out of contention. They had top place in every event, missing out only because they did not have a full team to bring them level with the Reservoir Dogs.
"The Dogs won the tie-break by virtue of winning the last event, but you could not ask for a closer series with the Dogs holding onto their top place for another year."
