These are the overall points of the Challenge. ELWINGS RIVAL (John and Hilary) is the clear winner. 2nd place is less clear cut due to the estimated times used this evening. But congratulations to Martin and Mick. In 4th place is Andrew Butcher in AELEA.
By way of comparison, I have also included points overall (in brackets) on the basis that Event 12 had been abandoned and all participants had been awarded DNF.
I'm afraid I made a complete hash of my little White Sail presentation at the AGM by incorrectly stating Andrew Butcher had won the Challenge overall. Senior lock-down moment but absolutely no excuse; somehow I completely mixed up the regatta and overall results sheets when compiling my presentation slides.
I did mention Andrew had won the Regatta element of the Challenge but of course it was John and Hilary in ELWING'S RIVAL that won overall, followed by Martin Worth in SPARKS and then Mick Flanagan with his Laser.
This is all such a shame as it meant their great efforts were not acknowledged at the AGM.
These are the results of this evening's event, based on best estimates of AELEA's and INT CANOE's elapsed times to Buoy 1. Not completely satisfactory but better than abandoning the event and giving everyone DNF. Note that I haven't adjusted handicaps for next year; wind was too light for this to be consistent
