Sorry we couldn’t bring you race 5 results from the water but it was so wet that the touch screen on the phone wouldn’t work! It would be entirely safe to say it was a wet and windy affair with very poor visibility. Indeed at one point your roving reporter thought it would be a good idea to go up the centre of the beat as trying to watch from one side was proving to be impossible. However, it turned out that even from the middle of the course it wasn’t possible to see all the boats out on the wings! Lord knows how the sailors found the marks.
Fortunately despite the lousy weather the race was fantastic and incredibly close. Neil Hegarty took line honours with Lawrie Smith second, Mike Budd third, Grant Gordon fourth, Gavia Wilkinson-Cox fifth and Bocci Aoyama sixth.
