Sunshine in the Harbour is a rare occurrence this year, so it was with great delight the seven crews competing in the first of the coastal races took to the water on Sunday morning, expecting light breezes and hours of sunshine. After a delayed start, OD Paul Tingle set the fleet off from Grassy on a lengthy beat to Cork Buoy, back to W2, out to the weather databuoy and back to finish at Weavers Point.
