Offwind across the loch, Teal kept her first place but lost it soon after the gybe for the run down the Shandon shore to the starting area. There was time for a second round. Only just, as it turned out because wind lightened and the light now fades early. Thinking to avoid a tacking duel and let Thalia through, Catriona maintained only loose cover on Teal, which was not good enough. Teal got ahead on the beat. There was the complication of strong adverse tide and light wind near the shore for the final rounding of D. As it was, the order did not change. Whilst the leading three were close, they each rounded cleanly.
1 Teal, 2 Catriona, 3 Thalia, 4 Hermes, 5 Ceres.
