For the 1st time I can remember, the result from the final race could have any boat from 3 winning overall, and 2 of those to decide the Classic wing winner. In the end, the sheer boat speed and placement of Ian Marshall couldn't be matched by Peter V or me, and he ran out a worthy winner. Sailing his Shelley Moth after, I can see how he was able to scoot away in the gusts, but how he kept her moving in the lulls is where the skill comes in!

Ist overall and 1st Old, Int Moth, Ian Marshall
2nd and 1st Classic, Saskia, Firefly, Rupert & Charlie Whelan
3rd and 2nd Classic, Django, Finn, Peter Vinton
1st Vintage, Blue Peter, Int 14, Chris & Lois Barlow
1st GRP, Albacore, Sandy & Pat

I'm sure Pat will have a full list of results up soon.
