In the event there were just a couple of short showers but plenty of wind and sun. So WindGuru was proved right yet again and Bill Oakley on Condor managed to produce a couple of cracking courses. The first race was round the cans of the Eastern Solent whilst the second was a straight windward-leward course with added interest from the West going tide.
It was a shame that there were not more boats willing to venture into the Eastern Solent but there was some very competitive racing, particularly in Class 1 where Guy Prest in Tarka II sailed comandingly into first place in both races.
Good luck to all boats in a couple of weeks time for the final two days of racing.
