There was 1 race sailed on the first day of Thistle Nationals. It was sailed in an 8 knots northerly breeze with huge rolling waves. After four general recalls, the fifth start went off fine with a z flag over an I flag. The race was won by Mike Ingham, followed by Kyle Finefrock, John Baker, Lloyd Kitchin and Jack Finefrock. The race committee made the right call to bring the fleet in after one race because the wind was dying and the large waves remained. Tomorrow looks like the wind will be from the West which would mean shifty and puffy conditions.
