The morning series saw Robert Hancock sailing his Reedling Siskin take two wins whilst Toby Fields in Tanskey took two domineering wins in the Yeomans.

Alastair Fields and Kevin Edwards also won both morning races in their respective fleets, the YBODs and Rebels, with Edward Wildman achieving the same feat in the dinghies.

Toby Fields won the third Yeoman race, whilst Derek Jones won the Reedlings in Merlin. Henry Means sailing a Tera and Edward Wildman won a dinghy race each, whilst Gordon Williams sailing Smuggler made it two firsts in the River Cruisers.
