The eight boats on the water got rough treatment due to the strong north westerly sea breeze. Spectators got to see around half a dozen capsizes and some high speed reaching. Per & Janaka was the only crew that managed to harness the spinnaker in the high gusts and ended up only 12 seconds after Devin & Asanka – who won the Coronation Cup. Rob and Sarah Phillipps was first by more than two minutes on handicap. Devin & Asanka second.
With grateful thanks from Mini, Jon & all the other sailors who were rescued by the motorboaters after capsizing!
