Adrian Tattersall and Tom Williams 3675 took the final honours in front of Nick and Clare Taylor 3575.
Race two saw a dramatic increase in the wind strength to Force 5-7. John and Bernie Saunders 3038 got off to a stunning start and led until just before the last leward mark, only to regain the lead from Nick and Clare Taylor on the last beat to win.
The second day saw the wind drop to a south-westerly Force 2-3 with lots of interesting shifts. After lots of place changing everything was down to the last race which Graham Lamond and Scott Train 617 led only to be taken on the last beat by Clare and Nick Taylor.
