Arnold Grant, the PRO, set a very nice windward/leeward course with the top mark comprising a clearance bouy and the bottom mark being a gate allowing sailors to split strategies.

Weather for the Saturday event comprised of a healthy southerly breeze tending to south east as the day progressed. A rigs where the suit of choice as the trees and jetty offered some protection. One race was completed on the southern side of the jetty, but then moved to the northern side after a slight direction change in the breeze. There it stayed for the two days.
Sunday offered a slightly stronger breeze starting from the south and tending south east. A rigs were chosen by all but one.

Both days offered different sailing conditions even though the breeze was very similar in direction. Saturday, the trees on the point provided a wind shadow at the lee mark. Sunday offered a chance for those to take the water route to the top mark rather than the shore route. This proving successful by up to a four to five boat lengths for the punters.

One fleet of 14 entrants constituted the field and a total of 34 races were completed over the two days.
