Matt Howard sailing his New Boon Solo 5211 took the title in a last race battle with Charlie Cumbley 5202. Charlie had lead the event from day one with 1,1,1,1,2,2,2,7 Matt counted a 1,1,1,2,2,2,3,3. Going into the last race Charlie had the lead by 2 points however he needed a result from the last race to prevent him counting a 7. Matt had his points “in the bank” so to speak and set about preventing Charlie posting a result, Charlie eventually had to count a 7th giving Matt the National title for a second year running and the Nations Trophy formerly the World Title. Congratulations and very well done to all mentioned.
