With 2 rounds completed, and already 30 boats completing both events, the overall rankings are starting to take shape, although with 6 events to go and four to qualify we will have to wait until the new year to see any firm patterns.

  Series Overall  With four previous Series winners and several class champions in the top ten, the 2019/20 Seldén Sailjuice Winter Series is set to be one of the closest fought. Currently at the top of the leader board is 2011/12 Series winner, Peter Gray (GP14), with Steve Cockerill (RS400) second and 2014/15 Series Winner, Nick Craig (GP14) completing the podium.
