Bruce Huber borrowed this card once and both Robin Ebsworth and William Daniels were amongst those who managed to steal a glance and avoid getting stuck down the marzipan.
Sunday brought more glorious 'funshine' and a perfect 6 knot puff. Mark Downer was the most creative; he ran circles round everyone. Bruce regained his form and stuck to the safer toffees whilst Philip Bown proved that he is a long way from losing his teeth.
The results suggest that a variable wind can mix things up, but they also show that 'Momma Gump's chocolate box theory' has not been entirely thought through.
There were twenty four entrants over the sun-soaked weekend and every one of them, including the Race Officers, had a smile on their face. Lovely.
