The RS400 Fat Face Circuit combined with the RS200s to visit the picturesque town of Abersoch in north Wales over the may bank holiday weekend and were treated to sunshine, wind and waves. After a short postponement, 25 boats went out to race in 12 knots over a proper nationals size course, with 2 laps taking almost an hour! Chris Gowers/June Riley and Paul Allen/Michael Allen made the early running but by the first mark Nick Craig/Al Fry had taken the lead. Near the top of the second beat the Allenís played the shifting wind better than Craig/Fry and took the lead that they held to the finish. Behind them, Tom Halhead/Chris Bishop took several places on the last run to com in third. Ronan Kenneally/Roger OíGorman won the silver fleet. With the wind and waves building, the second race started and Paul Hilliar/Stu Jagger crossed the fleet to take an early lead, with the Allenís and Dave Exley/Nigel Hall in hot pursuit. Hilliar/Jagger rounded first and extended the lead to win by a large margin, while the Allenís held off Gowers/Riley for second place, with Exley/Hall winning the silver fleet. In the third race, Hilliar/Jagger again crossed early to take the lead and extended from the pack downwind but this time Craig/Fry put in maximum effort to catch and overtake Hilliar/Jagger and take the win. As it turned out, Hilliar/Jagger were one of a few OCS casualties so they neednít have bothered! Halhead/Bishop profited from the OCS to take second and the consistent Allenís came in third, with Nick Holt/Derek Hill winning the silver fleet. Sunday threatened to give the fleet enough wind to race but it never quite got there so the consistent sailing of the Allenís was rewarded with the overall title. One point covered second to fourth, with Craig/Fry edging out Halhead/Bishop and Gowers/Riley.
