The day started with nice a bright and really fresh breeze coming off the land at Holywood, but typically the wind started to calm down just before the first race, but there was enough to hike. The first race saw Ryan Seaton teamed with Tiffany Brien take the lead from the first mark and they managed to hold onto the lead until the end.

The second race was a bit more of a ding dong with Peter Kennedy and Stevie Kane leading the first round, closely pursued by Tom Purdon and Rory Fekkes, but by the next lap, Paul McLaughlin and Owen McKinley had overtaken both of them to take the win. The third race kicked off and the wind started to bend to the left. Luckily for veteran sailor Liam Donnelly and Skinny Rick it paid dividends and they lead from start to finish.

This Sunday 11th November, racing starts at 13.30. As a result of the tight racing and crowded mark roundings, it has been decided that there will be a spreader mark at the windward mark and the leeward mark will be gate marks. Numbers on the start line should be up with Bob Espey, Hammy Baker, Neil Cody, Ed Cody & Sam Pickering expected to join the fun.
