Matt's Tornado made it's debut with Mike Rolfe as guest crew. Despite the traveler car jumping the tracks Matt soon bodged something up and completed the race in good style without the ability to change from dead center! The Big T was first to the windward and first home although not with the sort of margin he will need with that punishing handicap.

Brian Allen and Stelios on the Hurricane had a blast with the confidence born of last weeks Hurricane TT experience but were sadly let down with kite problems.

Martin & Debbie followed hard on the heals of Pete & Ben Boxer in matching Dart 18s then made their move at the Sewer mark of the last lap and clinched the race on handicap.

Pete and Helen had a ball on the Wanderer, with conditions 'right on the edge of scary' they were characteristically all smiles when they got back safely to the beach.

Thanks to Dan in the start box, Neil and Allen in Ralph and Eilish in the galley all helping to make it a memorable fathers day.
