This year’s Bank Holiday Pursuit Race was held on Monday 4th June. The first boat away was Amy Webster in her Laser 4.7 who made steady progress in the quiet conditions. Next away were the Solos followed by the Laser Radials. Progress was affected by the tidal gates on the course where small mistakes resulted in large gaps in the fleet. James Stevenson and Peter Hearne opened out an early lead which the following dinghies were unable to close.
James and Peter maintained their first and second positions with Jonathan Bailey taking third place in another Solo. Giles Bowerman finished in fourth place in his new K1, the first of two new K1s in the race.
