The ten skippers were greeted by a rather chilly wind that fluctuated most of the day, with skippers changing between their A, B and C1 rigs, which slowed down racing on the Saturday.
The Fleetwood skippers were joined this year by Peter Stollery (Guildford), Damian Ackroyd (Leeds & Bradford) along with Chris Harris and Lisa McKerchar (Bournville) who ensured that this event took place in 2012.
Sunday saw a more steady wind strength that allowed racing to progress at a more brisk pace.
We witnessed several very close finishes throughout the weekend.
Unfortunately Lisa suffered a broken mast step in the bottom of her beautifully planked yacht and was unable to compete in the later rounds of Sunday.
Peter Stollery was a convincing winner with Fleetwood skippers John Taylor and Peter Whiteside sailing off for second place.
A very enjoyable weekend with some excellent and good natured sailing seeing skippers helping each other around the Fleetwood lake.
