PRO Tom Nelson and his team did fantastic job of getting 6 of a scheduled 8 races off in a variety of conditions from shifty and light winds on Friday to a steady breeze gusting 25 kts on Saturday. The fleet went out to contest the close standings on Sunday but the wind took a holiday and racing was abandoned for the day. The final results were:

First Place – BER 1467 – Tiburon – Dirk Kneulman; Andrew Macrae; Dave Coxson – Oakville Yacht Squadron;

Second Place – CAN 1246 – Tag No 5 Racing – Craig Peters, Kent Paisley, Lee Parkhill – Oakville Yacht Squadron
