The 13 competitors was an increase on previous years and with mixed wind conditions it proved to be a real test of skill.
The saturday evening ended with an excellent meal from the caterer Emma and was attended by 45. Entertainment provided by Damien enabled worn out sailors to dance the night away or enjoy another beer!
Martin and Donna won the Splashaway Plaque for Upper Thames members and Andrew and Sue won the Notley Noggin – the award for the highest placed boat with a combined age of over 100.
