Summer finally arrived at Toward on Thursday evening for the fourth race in the Bute Series. Sunshine, which was almost warm, accompanied by a good breeze enabled the fast handicap boats to complete all three rounds of the course while the slow handicap ones completed the requisite two rounds. At the first mark Saorsa was first round closely followed by Dr Feelgood and by the second mark the fleet had stretched out more or less according to handicap. This is how it stayed until the end of the race although once the handicaps were applied it was Saorsa who won by a mere 45 seconds. A steady race from Alasdair McLean in his Laser gave him third place both on the water and on handicap, putting him well in contention for the series.
