Dragon Edinburgh Cup - Crowded at the top

Just one race for the Dragon Edinburgh Cup at Cowes and it was Ireland's Martin Byrne who took the win from Graham Bailey with Tom Vernon third.

This means that the leading four crews are covered by just four points with one final race to be sailed Friday.

Bailey tops the leader board with 12 points, Poul Richard Hoj-Jenson is on 14, World Champion Andy Beadsworth 15 and Martin Payne 16.

The forecast for that final race is 12 gusting 20 knots from the north-west, but we're beginning to learn that what is forecast and what we get are not necessarily related this week so stand by and watch this space.

After sailing the crews once again repaired to the Island Sailing Club's terrace where the daily prize giving included the presentation of the Crews Race Trophy, which went to Nigel Cole sailing Avalanche, and the Youngest Sailor Trophy which went to Will Heritage of Aimee.
