It was a beautiful evening, but the wind looked as if it was going to fade before racing got underway. Fortunately it held and it was over 30mins after the start before it did die, and then came in from another direction! The OD hastily moved the finish line (not often done with average laps!) to ensure boats finished in a sensible timescale.
Ginge was pleased to finish first on the water, albeit it just 1 sec ahead of Lynn Lawson and 3 secs ahead of Eric Smith. Neil Currie unluckily had two thirds of a lap to drift round before reaching the finish line so was stuffed, together with Sam Hall!
