Annette Walter was back to winning ways as the strong gusts of the previous week faded back to somewhat of normality.

Welwyn Garden City Sailing Club's Commodore Cup was fought over under blustery conditions but Walter had no such trouble in the more benign winds, picking up the overall win ahead of Roger Morse and Charles Adams  the club's commodore.
