Sunday 2nd August

A day to tax the race officer.  Wind was light and from the Shandon shore to begin with so that a short leeward/windward course was chosen.  It built a little during the race so that three rounds were completed.  It also backed so that the beat became a fetch and spinnakers could no longer be carried on the last outward leg.

Catriona started well and got away.  Thia was strong for most of the race but faded towards the end.  Thalia was never on the pace and looked in vain for flyers to try and catch up.  Zephyrus and Ceres lost out by not setting spinnakers to begin with but fought their way back.

1 Catriona, 2 Zephyrus, 3 Ceres, 4 Thia, 5 Thalia.
