Tom Bell secured Welland Yacht Club’s pursuit series without even taking part in Sunday’s three-race finale.
It could have been a showdown between two or three boats for overall honours.
But with no wind and the second and third placed contenders unable to attend, Bell decided not to take part either.
Five boats gave it a go for the fifth race of the series, struggling to find what little wind there was.
Result: 1 Brian Cobb, 2 Neal Tack & Rebecca Slator, 3 Gail Follington, 4 Niall Holland, 5 Ian Dignall.
Race 6: 1 Cobb, 2 Follington, 3 Dignall, 4 Tack & Slator.
Race 7: 1 Tack, 2 Cobb, 3 Dignall.
In the overall standings, Cobb was second with Tack and Slator third and Paul Burton fourth.
This Sunday will see the last regatta of the season, the Glenn C bowl starting at 11.30am.
The end-of-season social event on Saturday, November 12, at 7pm is followed by the start of the frostbite series the next day.
