The winners were Andy Gabb, Simon Palmer, Matt Donnan and Christ Walker.

Second place went to Paul Curtin, Reese Hales, Tony Strong and Caroline Bond.

Mike Cottam, Nigel Garwood , Gerald Turner and Steve Reed were third.

The weather was very windy with heavy downpours, but a great time was had by all.
