ArfER a poor start the usual
batch of troubles set in. H. C. Notley discovered that his boat was far from watertight, and C. J. King had motor trouble on the first lap.

Whitehorn hit some obstruction at full speed and actually proceeded backwards for some distance, much to the amusement of the spectators. Rowbottom also added to the fun by hitting the markboat and getting caught in its anchor line. From the half way mark, Whitehad a comfortable lead and won at an average of 28.6 m.p.h.
