The winner of the 3 dinghy races was Oscar Chess from Tata Sailing club in Osprey 1348. On the sunday the wind was light and there was an increased level of cloud. The cruisers started at midway followed by the dinghies 15 minutes later, the fleet made good progress through the sound, but was becalmed passed St Margarets. After a wind shift and a spot of rain the fleet was underway again, as the fleet rounded the lighthouse an optimistic few hosited kites and broke away.
