Mark Condy won the event taking line honours in race 5. Diana Kissane who took the opportunity to squeeze a Laser event into a busy 420 schedule was fourth overall and first girl winning race 4. Mark Condy is now competing in the Warnemunde regatta this week.

Alan Ruigrok and Conor Hopkins raced in the radial fleet with Alan finishing second overall, having led after Day 1. The overall winner was Chris Penney of East Antrim BC with three race wins on Sunday. Alan has travelled to Copenhagen for the European Championships and we wish him well at the event.
