The Rag pulls ahead
Crewed by 2001 World champion crew John Harris (skipper), Craig Ferris and Chris Cleary, 'The Rag' claimed victory by just 28 seconds from John Winning's team in Yandoo.
Computer Associates (Anthony Young) continued her consistent form to finish another 13 seconds back in third place.
The race was sailed in a 10-12 knot southeast wind with all teams choosing their big #1 rigs. Yandoo lead early before Rag & Famish moved into the lead on the second windward leg.
Although there was never more than 20 secs between the pair for the entire course Rag & Famish always led and eased just a few more secs away near the finish.
