Skippers who had endured calm, storms and ice over the previous 3 weeks were richly rewarded with perfect winds for B sails. (Occasional forays into A or C sails usually resulted poor scores).
At the start of the day the final series result was shaping up to be an overall win for Hugo Chandor (GBR 455) with Graham Waugh (GBR 476) taking second place from Richard Whittle (GBR 801). It was always going to be close between the second and third place boats after seasons discards were applied.
And so to the days sailing:
The surprise fly in the ointment for the series leaders turned out to be Darius Fard (GBR 26). Posting a string of consistently good results to include two bullets and five 3rd places ensured that he took overall 3rd place on the day, pushing Graham Waugh down to 4th.
For the Series, a 4th place finish on the day for Graham Waugh was enough to drop him to overall 3rd with Whittle moving up to 2nd and Hugo Chandor still retaining 1st.
