A cold wet morning greeted 5 skippers. The wind from the south east left the south bank and the east bank in heavy wind shadow. After much discussion and cogitation, which delayed the start, a reasonable course was set along the south bank. Ed, who was allocated sail number 0 due to his official number not yet being available, had radio problems from the start and did not manage a finish. sailing was extended to 13.00 hrs by which time 7 races had been completed. The well separated results do not reflect the closeness of the racing on the water.
