A more different day there could not have been! The fleet awoke to a calm, beautiful morning showing the West coast of Scotland.

After much waiting and 2 aborted races the fleet finally got under way for race 5 at 16:00 in a gentle 4-6kts. After a General Recall the fleet got away under U flag. Serega Samus nailed the start line to lead out the blocks and round the windward from Andy Tarboton. Down the run Schooling found a band of pressure to pull through to second. By the shortened course 2 lap finish Schooling had pulled through for the win from Tarboton with Jamie Hilton recovering from a poor start to rounding out the podium.

Race 6 was then fired off quickly with the breeze holding. The right side favoured and Jamie Hilton first from Dan Trotter and Fynn Sterritt. The leeward gate was tight but the right side then was then favoured again allowing Sterritt to extend away for the bullet with Tunbull second and Trotter third with Tarboton being UFD. By now it was 6pm and the fleet had been in there wetsuits for 9 hrs!

With seven different race winners the racing is extremely close going into the final day. Jamie Hilton still holds a narrow lead from Turnbull and Shelley with a planned 2 races to get a second discard into the series.
