The following week's race resulted in another dead heat with Mysterious Ways & Tank in a tie for first. Sante was third in the six-boat fleet. The next night Sante overtook Flying Gull at the end of the last leg with Mysterious Ways third. Thunderation passed two boats on the last leg for fourth. Racing was followed by a cookout sponsored by the Tank syndicate which lasted into Saturday.

The fog rolled in for the next race. Mysterious Ways was able to find her way around the course first followed by Sante and Thunderation.

The Hull One Design Regatta featured tight racing with the outcome not determined until the final race. Flying Gull took top honors followed by Mysterious Ways and Sante with just a point separating each boat after five races.
