Tailor Alf beats dinghy veterans

Tailor Alf Buxton beat the sailing veterans yesterday to win a series of races on points in the biggest-ever race meeting for Mirror Class dinghies. Alf, from Canvey Island, Essex, was sailing with his wife Terry on the River Medway, Kent. He has been, sailing for only just over a year. Last year he was third in the Mirror Class National Championships. This year's championships will be held at Plymouth from August 10th -15th. Already more than forty boats have entered.
