The recently restored, former One Ton Cup winner Rainbow II (Chris Bouzaid) was in her element and won by an impressive 6m 40s on IRC corrected time to increase her lead on overall points. Rainbow II always was a light airs flyer and appears to have lost none of that S&S pedigree during her complete restoration in the Silverdale yard of Wayne Olsen’s Horizon Boats.

Behind Rainbow II, it was a real tussle for high placings, the Farr 36 Revolution (Tony Wallis/Max Cossey) finishing second on corrected time (and moving up to second equal overall), just two seconds ahead of the 34ft Lidgard design Impact (Kevin Kelly).
