Last Saturday was held at Fish Hoek (RSA) the Miller's Classic, one of the races of the Cape Town Downwind Series. This time the conditions were perfect, with light swell and a constant 15-18 knots wind heading Fish Hoek from the start at Miller's Point. Victory was for the local star Dawid Mocke, followed closely by Tom Shilperoort and Adam Bothma. First junior was Craig Flanigan. The veterans podium was with Gary Cromie on top, Ian Trautmann second and Jami Hamlin third.

The SUP category, which had a less risky route to approach the finish due to sea conditions, was won by Peter Petersen, closely followed 30 seconds behind by Greg Bertish. Gary van Rooyen took third spot.

In the double boats category victory came to Gary Kroukamp, who had an outstanding partner who answered to the name of Tim... Brabants.
