14 skippers had a mixed session – cold but warming up; light variable wind becoming quite gusty – but still variable. Direction – just westerly enough to give a goodish wind from about A outwards – close in was the place to avoid. Odd set the courses starting with a 6/7,3,2,6,3,2,6, blues course, then shortened it by using 5 rather than 6 to speed things up a bit. Phil and Max had to leave early, and there were a few retirements. Trevor changed down to B, to good effect ( as a well as a superb ‘port’ start!) but the wind was mostly kind to the A rigs on the runs.

Sunday looks like a good blow – go find the B and C rigs – and a string to keep your hats on!
