The forecast was rather heavy for the Optimist End of Seasons but it turned out to be on the light side for Saturday's racing. Chloe Felton took full advantage of this finishing 1st in the 1st race, a good way ahead of the rest of the fleet. She followed this with a 3rd which left her at the top of the leaderboard. The afternoon's racing was not so good, dropping from 5th to 11th on the final beat of race 3 and the final race of the day being abandoned due to lack of wind. Sunday was much windier, with gusts registering between 25 and 30 knots. This took out many of the novice sailors of the regatta fleet but Chloe took it all in her stride with nothing lower than 7th place, leaving her 6th overall (2nd girl) in a fleet of 96 boats.
