Visitors to YDSC were welcomed by bright sunshine and Race Officer Tim Heaton. The sunshine quickly disappeared as Tim set the course in a force 4/5 and occasionally more. Few competitors got through the day without a swim, but everyone enjoyed the blistering reaches.

Joe Scurrah won the event overall with 3 outright wins, prizes were also given for Standard and Radial rigs. David Gamble Elton SC was the leading full rig followed by Ian Kennedy Craven SC, and Malcolm Marsden Blackpool and Fleetwood YC. In the Radial rig, Joe Scurrah Carsington SC was first, 2nd place Graham McWhirter, 3rd place Martin Walker YDSC.
