The sleek and fast looking MC38s are something of an eye-catcher at this regatta and when you see seven of them powering down Dent Passage under spinnaker, the camera boats tend to pay attention.

Leslie Green and his team aboard Ginger were so dominant in the series that they did not need to sail in the last race of the 12 race series (which they did nonetheless, placing a leisurely sixth!) having posted 5 bullets to score 27 points, finishing 5 points ahead of John Bacon's Dark Star on 33 points, with Marcus Blackmore's Hooligan taking third spot on the podium with 42 points.

Here are Crosbie Lorimer's images of the fleet's start this morning.
