Saturday provided a 5-15 knot northerly breeze in sunny conditions and proved to be a two boat battle for supremacy between the teams of Paul Vine / Dave Dubrovnic and Andy Partington / Ben Vernieres. Partington/Vernieres came out on top with two wins in some shifty and gusty conditions. Matt and Geoff Larkin lead the rest of the fleet home with some consistent results.
Sunday dawned a lot colder and with a slightly stronger and steadier breeze. The first race went to Vine/Dubrovnic after a tight battle, the second race went to Partington/Vernieres leaving the overall result hanging on the final race. This proved a tight battle with various teams battling for the lead, Vine came out on top again to win the meeting by one point, Charlie Duchesne/ Neil Tricker came in second with Partington in third.
Overall, a great early season opener and a chance to dust off the winter cobwebs.
