This year's race was again held during daytime. It took place under grey skies but was blessed with a good southerly breeze which allowed everyone to make a fast passage. A small Class U fleet sailed the traditional Fowey Buoy course while the larger Class Q entry sailed the direct route round Dodman to Fowey.

On arrival at the reserved pontoon, competitors were greeted by sunshine and the day was rounded off with a meal in the Fowey Gallants SC.
