The winner to Torquay, A69 – Cougar driven by Richard Carr and Steve Curtis broke on the race back to Cowes, their mechanical troubles were mirrored by Hendricks 55 driven by 2 time winner of the race Markus Hendricks. Silverline snapped a power steering belt on one engine on the run to Torquay, hasty repairs were carried out in the West Country which proved to be fruitful – Drew Langdon and Miles Jennings led from start to finish in their Outerlimits hull on the race back to Cowes. However, it was Dobson and Sheppard in Halcyon Connect that won the race overall with an elapsed time of 2 hours 35 minutes and 58 seconds in their Ilmor powered Dragon hull.
