In the team competition, the U13 Girls team took top spot in their age group, with a perfect record, winning all four races during the season.  The U17 Men were unlucky to end the season in second place, having finished equal on points with the winners, but losing out on ‘worst score’.  The Senior Women, who struggled with turn-out this season, were relegated to Division 2 in their category – but the Senior Men secured promotion back to Division 1 by finishing second in their Division 2.
