The first start is scheduled at 1400hrs and the last at 1500hrs. The one-design fleets racing are Pandora, Ruffian, Sonata, Flying Fifteen, Dragon, Impala, Etchells, J/80, Sportsboat and F18.

The Lipton Trophy presented by Infiniti prizegiving will be held at Kellett Island on Saturday. after racing.
