With winds of 25knots+ conditions were testing, with survival being on many skippers minds. Unfortunately some didn't survive and there were several boats who pulled out of the days battles due to the strength of the wind and the damaged caused by the wind and power of the waves.
Competition at the top of the fleet is stronger than ever, with few points splitting the top ten, and the winner could come from any one of 5 skippers.
Those currently sitting at the top are sailing boats suited to the tough conditions today, so the forecast of light winds for Monday could be a worry to them.
Although they were all putting on a brave face in the bar later!
Plenty of photos have been taken over the weekend and we will put these on the web as soon as possible.
