The latest event in the racing season at Mylor Yacht Club got underway at the weekend.

In Q Class the short legs of the course meant that the three main contenders were no more than 25-75 yards apart during the race with boats changing places on a regular basis.

Osprey (Martin Wilson) crossed the line just in front of Challonaise (Stephen Pendray) but dropped to third after handicapping calculations.

Rococo (Clive Hoyle) won the race by 12 seconds ahead of Challonaise.

In H class Five Shrimpers and the Cape Cutter 19, Nettie competed in what was her first race of this season's series.

The anticyclonic conditions which have been such a feature this Summer persisted giving rise to a light easterly wind which tended to fade away almost completely at various stages of the race.

This was especially true on the reach from PB at St Just to JB under the lee of Messack Point and the remains of the ebb tide.

The best of the wind funnelled down St. Just Creek. 

The race was won by a wide margin by Ysella (Brian Phipps) with Grace of St. Just (James Fairbairn) in second place who overtook Drake (Neil Phipott) in third place, the latter having held second place for the bulk of the race only to be overtaken on the reach up to the line.

The tricky sailing conditions led to an unusual result in E and W classes who both sailed the same course.

The first three yachts in W class beat the first three yachts in E class on corrected time, even though E class are the faster Class.

Mary Boon (John Cruise) sailed the best race of the season, to beat Flamingo Blue (Will Parkinson) and Wizard of Clee (Tony Hardman) into second and third place respectively.

For E class The Cool Kids (Tim Rowley) was first with the white sail Lightning (Peter Dallow) second and Nightowler (Mike Lithgow) coming third.
