The racing on the first day was two superb windward leeward races with Mike Butterfield the Race Officer starting both IRC 1 and IRC 2 on the RDYC committee boat.
Competitors experienced a 46 knots squall with hail-stones providing extreme conditions for the two fleets
The IRC 4 class managed to finish their race before the squal hit
