Lockwood shows Le Noury brothers the way home
Phil Lockwood had secured two easy wins in the previous two races in the absence of the Le Noury brothers, but showed them the way home on their return. Lockwood had the company early on of Jason Le Noury as he forced the pace from the start in the hot and windless conditions. (Photo below Jason and Phil lead with Stuart in background) Stuart was in third spot, well ahead of Rob Elliott. By mid race Lockwood was clear and opened up a winning gap of one minute and thirty six seconds as he crossed the line in 25.21. Stuart Le Noury had closed the gap on his brother in the latter stages and even edged ahead at one point, of the eight lap course, but Jason held on by two seconds to take second place.
Rob Elliott took a distant fourth spot in 29.25, some way down on his Island Record of 21.29 set in the 1980`s, but needs to lose a bit of weight to get nearer to that time! (Rob Elliott writes this report, so only picking on myself). Terry Bates took a clear fifth place, with the remaining three men finishing within a minute of each other.
Carol Bates and Kay Coulson walked to form, with Carol finishing in first place in 35.55. The two women finished first and second in the handicap section of the race, with Kay Coulson taking the win.
The mens Championship is very much “open” this year, with three different winners already in the “eight to score” from ten race series sponsored by Yorkshire Guernsey.
The next walk is on Sunday June 13th over 15 kilometres. The start is at the Imperial Hotel at 9.30 am, finishing at Les Amarreurs. Details from Jayne Le Noury, tel 246865.
