In keeping with traditional Largs Channel conditions, the wind did not last long and a wind hole developed to the north. The Lady Anne and Moonbeam IV were the first yachts to break out of the hole, escaping to a 12-15 knot northerly. Kentra and Belle Aventure followed some distance behind. After rounding a buoy at Skelmorlie bank, the boats in Class 1 headed west towards the island of Rothesay.
In Class 1, the course was shortened off Dunoon in a dying breeze. The Lady Anne sailed superbly to take line honours and to win on corrected time. Unfortunately for Moonbeam, a problem with their topsail meant Belle Aventure and Kentra were able to close the gap, and in the dying breeze, both overtook Moonbeam before the finish. Sonata sailed very well towards the end, and was able to take second place, with Kentra third.
The fleet enjoy a day off on Monday, and on Tuesday, The Rothesay Race takes the fleet to Rothesay on the Isle of Bute.
