Seventeen skippers entered the Sextant Trophy event but for various reasons 3 were unable to make it on the day.
Perhaps the most spectacular was Terry Burton when his car had an altercation with a deer while on the way to the event.
Both car and deer suffered terminal injury though fortunately Terry was OK.
Like many lakes at this time of year, Clayton Hill grows weed 'nicely' but with strenuous efforts by the club members, the tall stuff most likely to interfere with sailing had been removed. That left small amounts of floating bits, mainly brought up by the abundant bird population, for boats to catch. It is doubtful that many suffered seriously and as seems usual the best combinations of skipper and boat came to the top.
