The Turner 400 attracted 26 teams of 4, the upper reaches from Kelmscot to Rushey were used.
An awkward downstream wind made the going tricky. With matches leading up to this one showing a lack of big fish, teams targeting the many small fish showing this year were likely to do well. Indivdually Malc Pearc pegged at Radcot down stream caught 3 tench on the pole and chopped worm, backed up with bits for a winning 15.8.0. Next came Micky the whip Ellyatt who whipped out 13.12.0 of small fish from Radcot upstream. Third was Bob Bathe pegged in the weir pool at Rushey, he caught two bream on the feeder and backed it up with bits for 12.15.0. Team wise Shakespeare Black's 81 points edged out last years winners Turner Red's 79 points who finished third and only one point behind was Oxford Drennan Blue, 78points. Fourth Oxford Drennan Red 75, fifth Turners Blue.
