|The second race of the season was held in blustery weather but fortunately the light rain, which had been falling half an hour before the start, had stopped. The reasonable level of 30 starters included a good SWC number of seven. Once again Francisco Reis and Malcolm Martin were towards the front of the race as 2nd and 5th men respectively. Both had good times especially from Malcolm who had competitive company for most of the race while Francisco chased the runaway young leader, George Wilkinson, in determined manner from the start. Although down the field Angela Martin had a similar improvement to her husband. The other SWC, David, Chris Flint and Mick Harran were all not far ahead of Angela with Mick, who had not been there for Race 1, the only one showing normal form and less than half a minute behind Chris. Peter Hannell opted for the 3 miles but did show some improvement in time|
