This weekend saw the final Round of the Championship sponsored by Raceboat magazine.
Going into the weekend, Y Knot (Jeremy Gibson / Robert Dyke) held a narrow lead in the championship after winning the rounds at West Bay and Plymouth - the rough conditions at both events suiting the Phantom / Yamaha 130.
If Only (Bob McCarthy / Paul Knight) in a Bernico / Yamaha 130 was in second place. Bob is Chairman of the Offshore Circuit Racing Drivers Association.
In a distant third place was Bernico Racing (Robbie Mould / Jamie Stickler) also in a Bernico / Yamaha 130.
The weather in Torquay on Saturday was perfect for the 11 boats contesting the final round - sunshine and clouds on the English Riviera - and the water was relatively flat.
These conditions suited the Manerfelt bat boats - results:
NWJ Racing Manerfelt / Mercury 200 Neil Jackson / Jason Jackson
Sick Childrens Trust Manerfelt V24 Dan Priestley / Sam Brewster
Circle Express Manerfelt V24 Brian Peedell / Stewart Dick
These three boats were not serious contenders in the Championship having only contested Round 3 at Folkestone. Championship leader Y Knot was 5th.
By contrast, the weather on Sunday was wet and very windy. Conditions that again suited Y Knot and they won the final race, clinching the Championship. Celtic Mist (Alan Power / Olly Ashworth) were second and The Rock (Phil Hancock / Aaron Scott) third.
