The Staunton Harold Lasers on the road had another successful event at Swarkestone at the weekend. Rod Theaker, Rich Bennett (races 2 and 3 only), Craig and Paul Williamson joined the 29 strong fleet for round 5 of the 2014 Laser Midland Grand Prix. During the day all 4 Staunton Harold Sailors battled it out at the front of the fleet.  Paul led in the early stages of the first race finishing second.  In the second Race Rod and Craig had a better race with Craig winning and Rod finishing 4th.  In the last race both Craig and Paul were in with a chance of winning overall, but Rich led for much of the race closely pursued by Craig.  At the end John Ling from Barley passed both of them to take the event leaving Craig second in the race and Rich third.  Craig finished second overall with Paul third, Rich fifth and Rod seventh.
