22 entries for the Easterns at MYC. Very light winds caused a postponement ashore for a couple of hours and the RO miraculously got away 3 races on a falling tide. Short beats and long runs. Lots of rafting at the leeward mark.
Guy Marks and Mel Titmus dominates the day and won all three races at a canter. Several other boats had podium places but lacked the consistency to pressurise the leaders.
End of day 1:
1st Marks/Titmus 3 pts
2nd Whitney/Shelton 9 pts
3rd Wilson/Wilson 14 pts
Champagne reception now followed by dinner. Tomorrow is another day.
