Competitors and spectators enjoyed simply stunning weather on the penultimate day of Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week. The Isle of Wight and Solent were bathed with unbroken sunshine, while the westerly wind slowly swung into the south west and increased from 6-9 knots to reach 15 knots at lunchtime, before giving gusts of 20 knots in the afternoon.

The J/109 class has enjoyed a high-scoring series, with six different race winners and 11 of the 25-strong fleet scoring at least one podium result. David Richards’ Jumping Jellyfishstarted the day at the top of the leaderboard, but a disappointing sixth place, after accepting a time penalty that cost three places, saw him finish the series in second place, three points behind overall winner Neil McGrigor’s Boo. A win in today’s race for Nick Burns’ Team Mandrake saw him take third overall, just one point behind Jumping Jellyfish and one point ahead of Christopher Sharples, Richard Acland and Patrick Tolhurst’s Jukebox.
