The fight for first was between team Pica and team Be Light.

Both teams pushed each other hard however Pica had the best score sheet with a 1, 5, 1 securing them the event win with Be Light in second.

The race for the final podium spot was hotly contested between Chameleon I and Original Chia.

Experience in overpowered big rig conditions paid ultimately with the Danes holding off a strong charge from Chameleon I to secure third.

The final day of the European 18 foot skiff Grand Prix at Sandbanks saw a split in rig choices.

Some teams opted to rig for the dropping breeze forecast while others rigged for the stronger gusts.

Ultimately, there was a slight upwind advantage with the smaller rigs however the huge big rig sail plan allowed for heavier teams to sail deeper downwind.
