The usual course includes sailing around Puffin Island, but this year a race course had to be set avoiding going through the sound as winds were gusting to 6 in that area. Six craft set sail in very testing weather with several capsizes. The overall winner was solo sailor Mike Robertshaw on his Dart 15. A snapped shroud brought the mast down on a Dart 18 which put Bryan and Lewis out of the race.
1st Mike Robertshaw – Dart 15;
2nd Dave Titheridge and Gerhard Weiss – Laser Bahia;
3rd Mike Martin and Mick Martin – Hobie 16;
4th Phil Mack and Sam Owen – Hobie 16;
