Mitton held the overnight lead after four races in the 13–boat fleet with a second and three firsts from Chris Johnston's National Yacht Club entry Prospect who counted a first and three seconds.

Third place went to class Captain Frank Heath on Crazy Horse of the Royal St. George.

Today's racing was cancelled due to strong southerly winds on Dublin Bay.
