Results are under way, some late entries to figure out, but should be available soon.
Just a note about the prizegiving, I believe this has been put back from the published 18th as it's Easter weekend.

the results show i was not man enough to put the big kite up off the start...the after north head when i got it up it was all too late...
very impressed how a y88 goes upwind with No.1 and full main ..flogging like a sheet in the wind and i still couldnt catch him..!! lost a bit too much ground when i changed down to No.2 behind motuihe...
and thanks bondi tram for luffing me 100m from the finish.. debatable being legal... as you went above head to wind..
never mind i shouldnt of been behind you in the first place hey..!
thanks for a great series and the tight competition. for my year of gently getting back into racing.

#1 wasn't really the right sail for the job. I wanted to change down on the reach from motutapu to motuhie but The Ross 930 surfboard was running me down and overtook me. I saw you battling away bare headed & thought that's not worth putting my beer down for. Doing a single handed headsail change is a real b!tch and costs a lot of ground - 88's are only allowed hanks so persevered with the 1. Saw 18 knots true, was a bit flappy but wasn't much slower than the #2, just had to flatten the main right off & crank the back stay. You had a nice come back on the bondi surfboard
