Line Honours winner, Gusto - Ocean Race of Victoria (ORCV) Boxing Day Dash 2012 Teri Dodds © http://www.teridodds.com
It was a perfect morning to clear the head of Christmas Day festivities, and enjoy a wonderful day on the water racing on Port Phillip Bay today. The fleet of 93 set off at 10.30am for the race to Blairgowrie, in a very pleasant 12 - 15 knot south easterly.



Brian Pattinson’s Open 66, Gusto completed the race just 5 minutes outside of the race record at 15:15:58. The remainder of the fleet are expected to finish throughout the afternoon.




Tomorrow, some of today's fleet will start the Melbourne to Hobart (Eastcoaster or Westcoaster) and Melbourne to Launceston Races.

Para Worlds came to a thrilling conclusion during Delta Lloyd Regatta
The 2.4 Norlin OD was up first with Heiko Kroger (GER) capitalising on his overnight lead to take his ninth world title. While the other para fleets were reasonably secure the 16 boat Sonar fleet kept everyone guessing right down to the final leg. Alphonsus Doerr/Hugh Freund/Brad Kendell (USA) had led overnight twice and held a four point margin into the final day. Victory was not secure until the end of the tense final leg, with a third place enough to take the world title.
