No I was in 962 with the big blue and white logo on the sail
Whoever was in the yellow one looked quite handy though

Didn't - twas a (very well sailed) Laser.  Don't have the name of the chap, but round the windward mark on the last lap of both races he was up with the Phantoms and was just over a whole minute ahead of the second Laser.... well sailed. Cool

Didn't look that windy from the comfort of the top floor, but the Bootscooter-Yoof-Version reckoned about 10-15 kts gusting more.

Yep i'd say thats not far wrong, maybe some slightly stronger gusts too. The leading lasers were definitely flying - in front of me at the first windward mark in a 300 in the second race as I was buried at the start and ended up sailing round in the company of loads of phantoms and blazes for the rest of the race.

Results up now on GWSC website (no corrected times yet though):

I must say I struggle with the logic of the fleet division in those results, is there an overall list in finishing order/time or were they sailed separately?

Interesting to note Ruscoe beat the pro D1 jocks though Shocked.

The different fleets at the GGP do different courses, so you cannot get combined results.
