Congratulations to Seb Baucutts of the 29er class who took the individual trophy and helped ensured the 29er Class were out right champions. In an interview after the racing Seb did mention that Victor Brellisford of 18 and 14 fame had provided key guidance and pointers at Seb's local club where he races his "real" 29er. RS200 class was 2nd with the 18ft Skiff Class 3rd... So what can we make of all this? Well if Olympic Coach Hugh Styles is right, it will ensure that the next generation of skiff sailors are going fast as well as being tactical geniuses.
