Richard Smith won all three races in the Laser event whilst Alan Cone was runner-up, with Jonathan Jones taking third overall.

In the Fast Handicap fleet, Duncan Madin sailed his K1 to victory, with the Streakers of Veronica Falat and Mark Langston taking second and third places.

In the Slow Handicap fleet Geoff Ansdell won the first race in his Laser 4.7 but the overall winner was 11 year-old George Madin in his RS Tera Sport, making it a very good day for the Madin family.

The Lady Mayhew Trophy race saw Veronica Falat take the overall win over handicap with Alan Cone (Laser) in second place and Julian & Bethany Hood in third. Ben Falat finished five minutes ahead of the pack but placed fourth overall on corrected time.
