In the men's challenge the National Novices didn't really change the table much with Brian Bruton needing to be in the top 2 GCH finishers to push into second place.

The women's challenge is down to the last race of the series..................

Due to Jane and Mags both travelling to the National Novices and not only representing their county and club but they have also managed to score valuable points for the CGH Club Challenge in the process.
