A wind change to more NW caused the course to be relaid for the second race, which was sailed back-to-back with race 1. Once again there was a heavy port bias and the port starters went into an early lead. George Carter made no mistakes opening up a large lead which he maintained from start to finish. Sell and Sawford were second and third but Beaver light wind experts of Paul Smith, Peter Richardson, Steve Hanby and Austin Flather took the next places.
By this time the breeze was reducing to a F1-2, but the race team were concerned about the Sunday forecast of no wind and so proceeded to start race 3 back-to-back with race 2. A starboard biased line saw the whole fleet start in a line on starboard tack and Steve Petts led the charge from Nick Dewhirst, Simon Farthing and Dave Stanbridge. By the first mark, however, it was the boats which had tacked early to the favoured port tack side who had taken over the leading places. The wind continued to die and the race was terminated at the end of the second reach with the sequence of R Carter, S Hanby, G Carter, P Howden and Steve Sawford. The fleet retired, famished, to the bar.
On Sunday no wind materialized and by noon, Margaret Howe and her team called an end to the proceedings and the results were declared. In retrospect, the circumstances on Sunday made the decision to go for 3 races on Saturday look to be a masterstroke.
Thus, Bob Carter became the new Inland Champion with two firsts and George Carter was declared the Inland Sprint Champion.
