During Cowes Week, which was held from August 8 to 15 on the Isle of Wight, it was the two FIRST 40s, ZEPHYR skippered by Ian Marshall and LA REPONSE helmed by Andrew McIrvine, in IRC 2 that attempted to win the competition. They finished 2nd and 4th respectively, not being able to dethrone the winner who achieved a hold-up by winning the 6 races. A new second place was given to the First 35, STILETTO, skippered by Paul Woodward in the IRC 4 category. It should be noted that Cowes Week is considered one of the oldest races in the UK, with the first event dating from 1826!
