The day started dry and bright but with a cold easterly breeze which gradually increased during the morning. Most skippers took the opportunity to try out their shiny new A+ rigs. The early sailing was somewhat mixed while skippers came to terms with the sensitivity with which these rigs react to adjustments. They also proved difficult to handle as the wind strength increased. The A rigs came out after the break
Many thanks to the officials and helpers and to Gordon who, despite not having a boat to sail, stayed to do the scoring.
