Twelve boats have taken to the water for the first of this afternoon's races. At the start of the race, the Lark and Laser 200875 had a very good start. On the beat up to the first mark, the Laser and the Laser 2000 favoured a course out to sea. Three Lasers have sailed further out and are sailing directly down to the first buoy. The fleet seems to be in two sections almost like a cycle race, the Leaders and Pelaton.
