With sunnier weather than the previous day, yachts Malgas, Sea-Esta, Jelly-Baby and Tikalox II sailed an Olympic course in light SE winds.
After some argy-bargy at the start, Malgas, Jelly-Baby and Tikalox II kept a tight pack around the course, with Tikalox II gaining lost ground on the beats when it was able to hoist its spinnaker on the runs.
With just over a minute separating these three contenders, the corrected times were going to be telling. Tikalox II took first from Malgas, who was just 27 seconds ahead of Jelly-Baby. Sea-Esta brought up the rear a few minutes later. Full results below.
Thank you to Harry for taking Lady out as the committee boat and for the crew of Malgas and Sea-Esta for hauling marker-buoys.
