The sailing race took place on Monday morning with a reasonable wind powering the gigs.
The Helford was the first to cross the startline, followed closely by the Royal. The Fly and Nornour came later, the Slippen being the last to start. The Nornour overtook the Helford only to loose its lead during a tack. The Nornour eventually won the race with a considerable lead over the Helford and Royal.
