Race 3’s wind conditions were 15 to 20 knots. Nathan Outteridge provided explosive entertainment when his ‘Exploder’ was deliberately pulled over astern to effect a gear repair on the first down wind leg, resulting in him coming 17th. Results were; first Glenn Ashby, second Peter Burling and third Blair Tuke.
