Twelve Mirrors took part in the event. No less than 9 were GB team members. Five races, 4 to count. The constant NE wind force 2 to 3 with a spring tide made the event an exercise in tide and current. The fleet was divided into those who used the tide to advantage and those who did not. It was chocolates for the over thirties. Guy Wilkins and Alan Bennett were never to be challenged after race I and 2 it was clear that the championship was going to go to one of these experienced sailors.
