Today's race was sailed in a north west wind over a special windward-return course. Ssangyong Yandoo won the start but trailed Club Marine (John Winning Jr) at the windward mark. Ssangyong Yandoo grabbed the lead back downwind and led for the next lap of the course.
Rag & Famish came from fourth on the third windward leg to take the lead from Ssangyong Yandoo when Harris and his team made a great tactical move on the left hand side of the course.
Although the win was narrow the Rag & Famish victory was never really in doubt over the final lap of the course.
