29ers Entertain the Crowds at London Boat Show
Once again the weather Gods were kind to the competitors at ExCel for the Ovington Boat Show Grand Prix. 7 29ers raced alongside the Must Skiffs and B14"s and last year"s winners Phil Walker and John Mather were able to repeat their performance and take the 29er title. However it was not without a struggle, with three different winners from each race it was right down to the last leg to see who would come out on top. Adam Larvin & Siobhan Escritt counted a 1,2,4 against Phil & Johns 1,2,3 who only just finished behind Adam & Siobhan in the last race. 3rd place was even closer with the result going to count-back, it was Henry Lloyd-Williams and Sam Batten who got a first place in race 1 stealing the final podium place from Alex Mothersale and Hamish Ellis. A glitzy price giving took place on the main stage in the show with prizes from Harken.
