We had a day of light and shifty winds, lots of tacks and the leader board had changed again and again, depending who got the favourable wind shift and who didn't. The whole fleet made it around the Virtual Mark Hutchings and is still pretty close together.

Now the race to the next mark has begun, with some boats going for speed and heading further inshore, while other are trying to keep their height and staying further offshore. Time will tell which strategy pays off.

Fair winds and a following sea!
