The day started with constant rain, dark clouds and little wind. Nobody was looking forward to the prospect of heading out to compete but the wind was set to increase throughout the day so we were looking forward to some exciting racing.
Race 1 started at 12 noon in about 15 knots. There was a lot of close racing with many position changes, especially in the top half of the fleet. In the end Emma and Rachel Grayson narrowly took victory whilst Matt and Ben Lulham-Robinson took second and Sarah Richards finished third. The top three boats finished within 5 boat lengths of each other which shows how close the racing was.
