Despite continuous rain and grey clouds there was a good turnout for this Sunday's race, with crews well wrapped up and moving carefully on yacht surfaces in slippery conditions.

The race, a Class Start, where yachts were phased over three intervals, was 2 laps, starting North and sailing a triangular course passing buoys to starboard. The light winds were a good test of skippers and crew, positioning sails and selecting course to win the advantage.
