Lexus Adelaide to Port Lincoln Yacht Race 2013 was totally owned by Geoff Boettcher and his crew as their boat Secret Men's Business followed their line honours victory with PHS (Overall Handicap), Division 1 IRC, and Overall IRC crowns.

Boettcher and his crew sailed a 'strategically sound' race and after taking the line honours victory in difficult conditions have also come away with a 'clean sweep' in all aspects of the overall results.

There were several different categories within the race that were competed for and all of them provided some great competition.

The multihull champion was won by Royal SA Yacht Squadron boat Hasta La Vista skippered by Geoff Kneebone who had a convincing win against other multihull competitors and The cruising division champion was won by School's Out skippered by Adrian Wotton.

The first Sydney 38 was Shining Sea of the Cruising Yacht Club of SA who also performed very well on IRC and the first Port Lincoln boat overall was 'Fresh' skippered by David Buckland.

The clubs team trophy which is represented by the best four boats of a single club on PHS went to the Cruising Yacht Club of South Australia who had first, second, fourth, and fifth on PHS. These four boats were Secret Men's Business (first), Shining Sea (second), Asylum (fourth) and Rapid 1 (fifth).

The IRC Division 1 category was fought for between many strong competitors and on corrected time there was less than a couple of hours between second and fifth with the exception of Secret Men's Business who obtained a dominating victory.

The top three Div 1 IRC results were as followed. Two True of the Cruising Yacht Club of SA skippered by Andrew Saies came in third, Scarlet Runner of the Sandringham Yacht Club skippered by Robert Date clinched second place and the overall victory went to Secret Men's Business of the Cruising Yacht Club of SA skippered by Geoff Boettcher.
