Early Saturday there was patchy fog but this was quickly burned off for a sunny day. The start was delayed slightly to allow a sea breeze to get established and there were some controversial manoeuvres on the line but all away towards the first mark out by the shipping channel. The breeze built slowly so despite the desire from some to finish early in order to shop at Gunwharf Quay the race was hardly shortened at all. Then it was into Portsmouth, a little shopping, some drinks on the pontoon and then an excellent and sociable dinner at Portsmouth Sailing Club. Another splendid day of sailing.
