Girls on Film leads the One Ton Cup

After three races, Peter Morton's Girls on Film leads the One Ton Cup. Johnny Vincent's Pace is second and Keith Mills' Invictus is third.

Three tough windward leeward races tested the stamina of all the teams.

Breathless, salt-encrusted, but also deliriously happy with a fantastic day on the race course, there was plenty of banter at Hamble Yacht Services Event Centre after racing- truly a full on foam up.

Bill Coates American Ker 43, Otra Vez was quick out of the blocks in the first race but Peter Morton's British Carkeek 40+, Girls on Film, reeled them in to take line honours and the win after IRC time correction.

Race Two was won by Pace by 32 seconds from Girls on Film, who had a spectacular broach, but they were not alone; Otra Vez split their kite in half, a major handicap to sail selection.

Race 3 was won by Girls on Film, Stewart Whitehead's Carkeek 40 Rebellion scored a notable second and Invictus scoring another podium finish.

Tony Dickin's GP42 Jubilee had two great races today but spinnaker damage in the last race has put the British team out of the running for a first day podium position.

Saturday is a big day, with points-weighted races that can not be discarded.
