THE threatening winter conditions did not prevent Liverpool Yacht Club / Tranmere Sailing Club staging their latest Brass Monkey Series races on the River Mersey on Sunday.

There was a seven-strong turnout in IRC Class One eventually headed by Greg Chiswell's Diva from Bada Bing (Andy Napper and Andrew Farrall) and Eazi Tiger (Adam Kyffin).

The Warwick Telfer owned Clarevouyant took Class Two from Saphoenix (Ken Roberts).

There were three starters here. The next competition is scheduled for February 16 at 10.30am.
