While the rest of the Solent was filled with yachts going around the Isle of Wight, the International Moth fleet were enjoying Stokes Bay at its very best. Four fantastic races were held in cracking conditions.

But Jof Heathcote appears to have had a bad day after two exceptional opening days. An 11th; DNC and a 13th have really spoilt his scorecard in which he scored top 10 finishes in the opening 6 races.

Despite this, he is still lying 7th overall and will be determined to pull himself up further today and not drop out of the top 10. Despite a bad day, his finishing positions, in a fleet of 59 boats, are exceptional. Especially when up against the top Moth exponents in the UK.
