Two Aggregate races were run from the tower on Saturday afternoon. It was a great sailing day with 10-20 knot northerly winds and a flat sea. Courses 4 (2 laps) and 5 were used.
There were 20 boats on the water. For the 1st race, Take Five won on AMS, Ellipse on IRC and Myaura on PHS. Race two had a slight change in winners, with Addiction taking out AMS and PHS and Ellipse retaining IRC.
