The seven teams in this international event for amateur crews got their money's worth. The race proved to be one of the most dramatic laps of the Isle of the Wight we have followed, including some monstrous snakes and ladders, for some boats the most wind their crews had seen all week and the whole gamut of conditions (or up to 18 knots at least) culminating in the latter two thirds of the fleet being becalmed on the final approach to the finish.

Despite this, day six of the regatta was the first where one team managed to put in a consistent performance with all three boats in RYA Team GBR Red finishing in the top five. From being 10 points ahead at the start of the day, they are now 55.5 points ahead of the GBR White. This leaves them in good shape going into tomorrow's final double points scoring inshore race.
