On Saturday the 61 teams were greeted with an ever-building breeze, reaching gusts of 41kts. This meant that despite Chichester Harbour being bathed in beautiful spring sunshine, Saturday was blown off.
With the clocks going forward and Sunday's racing also being brought forward an hour, everyone was in for an early start. Sunday's four-race series began with glamorous sailing conditions: wall-to-wall sunshine and 15kts.
Each race provided different challenges to test even the best sailors: choppy Solent waters, fluctuating breeze and powerful tides. Those sailors who could quickly get their heads around the conditions made it to the fore.
The event concluded with 20 boats being black flagged on the last race, reducing the size of the fleet considerably and providing the chance for some less experienced sailors to get some good results. Team Dylan Squared, Dylan McPherson & Dylan Collingbourne, took the win by an impressive margin to retain the Spring Championship trophy.
