Only three Tamar boats went out. Sue Murray sailed her 4.7 and the two Solos of David Perrett and Adam Hilton went out.
The Roadfords had seven boats out; their usual Supernovas and the odd Laser but also the Albacore, an International Canoe and a Hadron 2.
The wind was strongish and gusty – a good deal of capsizing took place. Dave Perrett was finding the Solo given to rock and roll on the run but the Canoe seemed rarely to be upright.
Sue Murray achieved fourth place on corrected time in both races.
