Coxon the champion
Coxon and his crew of Aaron Links and Nathan Ellis finished with a total of 8.75 points from one win, two seconds and one fourth placing to narrowly defeat Rag & Famish Hotel (John Harris) on 10 points and Yandoo (John Winning) on 12.5 points.
The series was certainly one of the closest on record with four different winners from the five heats.
Yandoo was the only skiff to win two heats but a slow start to the series robbed the team of possible victory when they recorded only 5th, 6th and 10th placings in the first three heats.
In today's heat Yandoo led all the way to defeat Rag & Famish by 33secs with Omega Smeg (Daniel Phillips) a distant third 1min 47secs behind Rag & Famish.
The race was sailed in a moderate ENE breeze which provided little difficulty for the fleet and the course was sailed in the record time of 52mins 53secs.
