They rounded well clear and sailed a faultless race to win easily. Second around the windward mark was Chris JONES and Rob TEMPLE from West Lancs SC followed in third by Richard ESTAUGH and Simon POTTS from Chase SC. Matthew and Phil rounded in fourth closely followed by Neil MARSDEN and Derek HILL from Blackpool & Fleetwood SC. Ichard and Simon overtook Chris and Rob to finish second in the race, whilst the other main championship contender Neil and Derek moved up into third. Matthew and Phil held fourth whilst Carl JEFFS and Jim TOOTHILL came through to record a fifth place finish.
The Championship is still wide open with two races left to sail, however Neil and Derek are slight favourites over Richard and Simon with the possibility of the boats in positions third through to sixth being able to win the World Championship title.
