At the half way point of the competition, Team Sussex were in third place. Midway through the second session they dropped back into fourth place and it was a nail biting few races before we pulled far enough away from Worcestershire in fifth place to give us near certain promotion.
In the final event we were in the first heat and in second place to Scotland West – then the announcement of our disqualification.
Fortunately our team had put in enough work in the earlier events and had a big enough cushion that, even without any point for the race, we held our fourth place and can look forward to racing in the top group next year.
Fantastic effort from everyone and thanks also to our team of coaches, managers and officials who helped to make the weekend and competition so successful.
