This event was the final one in the series, "Shock Accumulator", a first year for this series with each event"s importance increasing as the year went on. The event had a good turnout of 11 boats, all eager to get out on the water.The first race was a mixture of conditions, with big waves left over from some strong winds sailing out. As well as continually shifting winds, meaning a strong tactical head was needed. During the race positions were swapped regularly, with Henry Lloyd Williams and Sam Batten clinching the first place, closely followed by Arthur and Ed Romano and Jack Hawkins and Chris Thomas taking third.Race two saw a big wind shift to the left with about 30 seconds to go before the gun. This turned the race in to almost a reaching race, with the left hand side of the course massively favoured. Meaning that great boat speed was required to do well. James Briggs and Chris Peel took the bullet in this race by a considerable margin. Henry Lloyd Williams and Sam Batten finished second, closely followed again by Arthur and Ed Romano in third.The final race of the day saw the steadiest winds as well as much flatter water, making the light conditions much easier to sail in, and tide becoming the main factor. Taking the bullet this time was Arthur and Ed Romano who had stretched out such a lead that they finished in and amongst the International 14"s that were also racing on the course. Taking second place was Briggs and Chris Peel, followed by Ollie Cooper and James Poyner in third.The second day of racing saw high winds reaching 40 knots and a big sea. This meant that that there was likely to be no sailing and at 11 o"clock the decision was cast to abandon. This left the overall standings as:In first place, Arthur and Ed RomanoIn second Place, Briggs and Chris PeelIn third place, Henry Lloyd Williams and Sam BattenSam
