Darin Ballington from Manor Park SC finished 2018 in style with a tight win over Yeovils Tony EdwardsDuncan Ellis from Norwich filled the final podium place showing his steady rise over the year that included a strong first up showing in Germany at the Worlds.

14 races were sailed over the day with a long course set by PRO Richard Uttley and his Datchet team with SSW conditions seeing skippers at the top end of B rig in fast open water racing tailor made for the class.

A number of strong results were had over the course of the day with both Vinnie Zammit and Mike Cooke taking wins that were for the better part shared between Ballington and Edwards through good starting technique and strong course management.

With only a sprinkle of festive races left for 2018, attention will soon turn to 2019 and what is expected to be one of the most competitive on record as skippers vie for all important ranking points for GBR selection at the 2020 West Kirby Worlds.
A big year ahead planned and more on that with our next updates.
