The class National Championship will be held at Pwllheli in August,and this was something of a trial run.

The plan was for a five race series with modern Olympic courses to test the water before the championship.

Strong winds provided some tricky conditions on Saturday, but those that went survived OK.

The Potts (1,2,1) battled with Chris Jennings and Pete Horn (2,1,3) for the first day's lead, with Matt Biggs and Ben Hollis (3,3,2) taking third place.

Sunday was a more user friendly day, the sun providing great sailing conditions.

The Potts (2,1) and Jennings and Horn (1,2) swapped leading scores, but it was Simon and Ally Potts whose day 1 results carried the overall victory.
