ALAN Gillard enjoyed a double victory in the latest round of West Riding Sailing Club’s Frostbite Series.

Gillard stormed to success in races 10 and 11 of the series, which is living up to its name thanks to the recent chilly weather conditions.

The Sheffield-based sailor pipped Tim Keighley, of Leeds, to first at West Riding’s Wintersett reservoir base.

Mark Weston, of Huddersfield, finished third.

It was the same top-two in the second race of the meeting, with Mark Weston of Huddersfield completing the top three.

Gillard won last weekend’s race 8, with Keighley in second and Wakefield’s Guy Cokill third.

Keighley won race 9, with Matt Cook second and Cokill third.
