The perfect sailing conditions also allowed two of the Junior crews to skipper their boats with Jackson Dent taking the helm of Fastglass with Dad Andrew in the bow and Oliver Cooke steering in a race for the very first time in the Firefly with father Gavin crewing.
The fleet got away an early start with Douglas and Spencer in Waterbourne at Last being first to tack away onto Port. Two minutes later they tacked back onto starboard in a nice lift and put a gap on the fleet they were able to maintain for the rest of the race. Behind them the racing was tight. With the Firefly edging the Tigers Tail (Derek and Claudia Hadwen) around the 1st mark. The battle ensued for the next lap with Tigers Tail finally edging ahead on the next work. However, the dark horse was Steve in the Spiegel. After a slow start, he worked his way through the fleet passing Firefly and catching but not quite passing the Tigers Tail.
