Competitors arriving at Brixham Yacht Club were greeted by rain, light winds and fog, leading to questions as to whether we would actually be racing. Just in time the fog burnt away and the fleet of 18 RS600s headed out, watched with interest by the resident seals.

After a brief delay while the wind settled, racing got under way in a perfect 10 knots with slight chop.

In race 1, Jamie Mawson port tacked the fleet and headed inshore in an attempt to beat the tide. Unfortunately this did not pay off due to a large shift to the left, with the rest of the fleet arriving in a tight bunch at the first mark. George Smith and Mike Izzatt pulled away from the fleet to finish in that order, followed by Adam Watson.

Race 2 saw the breeze increase to 12-15 knots and settled in to a more consistent direction. George and Jamie engaged in a private battle, stretching out a good lead on the rest of the fleet. After changing places several times, Jamie took the win by a few seconds from George, with Alex Piggott third.

In the final race, George took an early lead and took his second win unchallenged, with Jamie second along with Chris Haslam.

A long beat home was rewarded by a hard-working beach team fetching our trolleys and complimentary ice creams, before the fleet headed out for much deserved pizza.

Thanks for a great day Brixham YC!
