The weather gods provided a good mix of conditions including one very light day and one full on blow, and ashore the club laid on its usual Essex hospitality, including a formal black tie dinner on the penultimate evening.
Overall winners of the event were Rhys Lewis and Drew Wright who took victory by eight points from Will Michele and Ian Robinson.
