Judging and competing in action
Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth wasn't at home in the nearby Windsor Castle, but I'm sure she would have approved! The Winner was Mr. Etan Patel with a time of 1 hour and 8 minutes, 46 seconds. He won a Xicar lighter and will compete at the UK final on 6th September. A very good start to his CSWC career ! A very close second was Mr. Billy Bulsara with a time of 1 hour and 6 minutes, 55 seconds. Havana House is very keen to host some practice events and next year's Berkshire region Qualifier event.
