Peter and Marion Jennett's Exody had unfortunately come to a halt in the Crinan Canal with a gearbox problem although better it happened there than somewhere in the Tropics. Graham Gillies was in attendance with Silverjack along with Don and Marge but they opted not to race, Troikka was still in Kip marina after technical issues so with a few regulars missing the entry list was slightly depleted. A welcome new addition however was Alastair Gardner's doughty little First 21.7 down from Easdale. Tom Hutchinson on Aquaholic was race officer and the race started on time in a good SW 15 kts on a sparkling Loch Shuna.
There was close racing between Dr Douglas Gray's Finngulf 41 'Shenaval' with his crew of nimble young lads and Ataraxia, the Dufour 40 of Steve and Susan Pickles with master tactician Marcus and the irrepressible Trevor on board.
