Following heavy overnight rain, the day dawned dry, with Berrow Hill swathed in low cloud and scarcely a breath of wind. As ‘H’ hour approached, the sun tried valiantly to break through the cloud and, as the start whistle blew, so did the wind, and picked up as the morning wore on. Tony Male lead the open class with 56, one point ahead of Phil Soper, and Perry Broad topped the recoil class with 47, followed by Lee Malpass with 40. Positions on count back.
