Thursday's racing was postponed for a few hours in the morning due to the strong breeze and a large swell on the race course. The wind had moderated by afternoon and two races were sailed in a 12-18knot Southerly breeze in a big swell.
The first race got away with most of the fleet crossing the line on port. Mitch Booth, Roman Hagara and Hugh Styles battled for the lead, and finished in that order. Bundock and Forbes struggled to pull back through the fleet after a poor first beat and finished 8th.

In the second race of the day Bundock and Forbes returned to the front and lead throughout. Mitch Booth & Roman Hagara fought for second for most of the race until the last beat where Styles & May moved through from 4th to take second, and held it to the finish. Hagara got third, but Mitch suffered on the final beat and finished 9th.
