Aye, that's an outstanding result in such a high class field. Well done those chaps!

So My 1-2-3
1. Nick Craig / Toby Lewis (Toby is a huge factor and not properly recognised).
2. Tom Gillard/ Oliver Wells (Hoping Youth and Yorkshire grit will win through)
3. Stu Bithell / Luke Patience (No denying the talent here- whichever way round they sail).
Outside Bet  Camm / Ballantyne - they are so quick if it's light!

Whoever wins will have to sail exceptionally well.

My top 3 wasn't too accurate but Nick  / Toby still did a good job. Ben Saxton and Alan Roberts were exceptional - should have spotted the potential there following their domination of the RS200 nationals.

Great result for Jasper Barham and Graham Sexton representing the L2000 class. Which at least partly confirms I'm not far wrong about so called minor classes. (And the few 'major classes' that didnt make the top 15 overall).

These guys are also lying second in the RS400 tour series, so clearly look beyond the L2000.

Possibly a mistake to analyse the results too much, but I'm guessing a few of the 'major class' sailors might have liked more wind?

Anyway, well done to the RS200 guys.

In fact Jasper normally sails his L2000 with his wife Laura Smile

Yep - and I reckon they get as much competition in the 2K as the 400 ;)
