Racing took place outside the harbour in the bay just off South Shields. Saturday brought bright sunshine with medium, but gusty and shifty winds. Conditions on Sunday were more challenging with winds gusting to 30 knots. The final race was abandoned as the wind strengthened. A total of 19 boats took place in the event, including 5 Solutions with some travelling from as far away as North Wales.
