18 teams sailing 24 fireflies competed at the Wessex Winter Warmer on 7th/8th Feb in chilly medium winds but blue skies and sunshine.

Teams included newly selected GBR1 and GBR2 teams and 1st reserves.

After a complete round robin of some 156 races West Kirby Hawks remained unbeaten with Society team (and guests) 2nd, Keyhaven 3rd and Itchenor 4th. These 4 teams sailed semi – finals where Hawks beat Itchenor 2-0 and Keyhaven beat Society 2-0.

Hawks continued their dominance in the final and despite being in losing combinations at times and chaotic situations always managed to emerge on top to win 2-0 over Keyhaven and remain unbeaten over the weekend.
