The prize-giving for the Seldén SailJuice Winter Series always attracts a big crowd, and this season's review of the season takes place soon after doors open on Saturday morning at the RYA Dinghy & Watersports Show.

Taking place for the first time at the Farnborough International Exhibition Centre, the Show is aimed at people who are passionate about grass-roots dinghy sailing, which is what the Seldén SailJuice Winter Series is all about.

Starting at 1015am on the Main Stage, the prize-giving will celebrate not just the top ten overall, but the many different category winners.

Overall rankings

Roger Gilbert and Ben McGrane (505 - Netley SC) won three events, and were second in the fourth. It was the most dominant performance yet seen in the 13 seasons since the Winter Series first began. It's the first time a 505 has taken the top spot, but seeing as Gilbert & McGrane have won the National and European Championships in the past couple of years, there's no doubting the quality of this talented and hard-working duo.

For the second year running, Luke Fisher (RS Vareo - Emberton Park SC), finished in the runner-up spot with Ben Flower (Laser ILCA 7 - Paignton SC) in third. Just outside the podium by less than two points were previous winners of the Sailjuice Winter Series, Tom Gillard & Rachael Gray (Merlin Rocket - Staunton Harold).
