|| Murray Hadden
Thursday evening was a glorious summer evening, with a light easterly promising a reasonable pursuit race for the only two sailors to turn up – Murray Hadden (Laser) and Jim Green (Solo.)
Even as the boats launched, the wind had dropped a little, but there was still enough for Murray to begin reducing Jim's lead by the first mark. The wind then dropped further, allowing the Solo to pull away from the Laser, and Murray's hopes of catching Jim were scuppered altogether. After 50 minutes, Jim was first, Murray second.
