Crowded start line at Tamesis - Tamesis Firefly Elizabeth Cup
The conditions were ideal for the spectators but less so for the competitors. Glorious sunshine and barely a breeze that would not remain in one direction. A tough competition ensued and going into the final race any one of three boats could have won. In the end Stuart and Emily won the event, the first in the M25 series.
