Seventeen RS300 competitors took part in the championship, held at South Cerney SC prepared for the forecast gale.

But, the wind never got above 10 knots (despite the best efforts of Windguru) and did not bother to appear on Sunday.

More excitement was provided by the addition of a female competitor - Women's Day (8 March) reaches the RS300.

With the event reduced to the three races completed on Saturday, Steve Bolland completed a hat-trick of wins to take the title.

Second was Steve Sallis (2,2,3) of Hykeham Sailing Club, with Richard Le Mare (4,7,4) of Notts County Sailing Club in third.

International traveler Alistair Mclaughlin (16,3,2) from Prestwick Sailing Club, would have finished higher but was OCS in the first race, and without a discard placed fourth overall.

Next up, Sprint Champs at Rutland on 22-23 April.
