Lloyd Clark’’s Voodoo Chile is lying second overall, just one point behind Transfusion - Aberdeen Asset Farr 40 OD Trophy Dale Lorimer
Six Farr 40s contested Day One of the Aberdeen Asset Management Farr 40 One Design Trophy regatta on Sydney Harbour today.

Four races were held on a windward/leeward course between Dobroyd Head and Lady Bay in 12-15 knot breezes that shifted slowly from south to SSE over the course of the races.

Lloyd Clark's Voodoo Chile and Guido Belgiorno-Nettis' Tranfusion alternated their two wins apiece, with Tom Slingsby calling tactics on Transfusion, helping to put them on top of the leader board on 7 points, while Voodo Chile is second on 8 points and Stephen Boyes Wired, third on 13 points.

Dale Lorimer followed the fleet and captured these images. Watch out for Dale's Day One video, coming shortly.
