Defending UK National Champion's McFly sailed by Tony Mack, started the regatta with two straight wins to lead the class after the first day. Louise Makin & Chris Jones' JourneyMaker II is second after two races with Tim Tolcher's Raging Bull 2 in third.
"We had good boat speed today, which was one of the main reasons for our performance," commented McFly's Tony Mack. "With the breeze building, we made sure that we retuned the rig in between races. We have had a few changes in our crew brought upon us, but the new sailors have settled in really well. As always, starts are very competitive in the J/111 fleet, and I am sure the level of competition will remain high for the whole regatta. It was great fun today, especially planing in the second race."
