Eighteen races were sailed on the Little Broad at Filby, hosted by The Broads Radio Yacht Club.

Racing started in a very light wind from the North, which is the most favourable direction at Filby, but veered towards the east in the afternoon. There were 3 different race winners, during the day, but Colin Goodman (Grunge), Duncan Ellis (Grunge) and Vinnie Zammit (Starkers Cubed) gradually established a lead over the remainder of the fleet.

In the end Colin's consistency won the day, after some very close and competitive racing. Colin has now established a big lead in the GAMES series, but the other podium positions and improver's prize are still to sail for in the remaining 2 events at 3 Rivers and Guildford Model Yacht Clubs.

Overall Results:

1st Colin Goodman (Chelmsford) GRUNGE 18.5pts
2nd Duncan Ellis (Norwich) GRUNGE 28pts
3rd Vinnie Zammit (Norwich) STARKERS CUBED 37pts
4th Ian Self (Norwich) STARKERS CUBED 63pts
5th David Perkins (Cambridge) NIOUTRAM 82pts
6th Mike Howard (Broads) PARADOX 83pts
7th Mark Quayle (Norwich) PARADOX 86pts
8th Neil Cousins (Broads) MONARCH 103pts
