Just four boats lined up for the racing in the light fickle breeze this morning. The wind direction varied as much as the strength, during one circuit of the course it was possible to keep on the same point of sail on the same tack. It was very rare for any boat to sail continuously around the course without running out of wind at least once.

Therefore the racing wasn’t fast and furious, rather slow and unpredictable, but this made for good racing no the less. Even a tail-ender could give the leader cause for concern if the wind filled from the back of the fleet. Over all winner of the day was Graham, who took most of the wins. The other skippers didn’t make it easy for him, and some of the wins were taken by less than a boat length on a few occasions.
