Rag & Famish Hotel won the last 18ftr race of 2011/12 season. Jack McCartney, Mark Kennedy and Pete Harris got home in one of the closest battles this season, holding out the fast finishing Gotta Love It 7, Seve Jarvin, Sam Newton, Seve's mate and Appliances on Line, Marcus Ashey Jones, Paul Montegue, and Tom Anderson just astern in third.
The entire race was dominated by Rag and Appliances with Gotta Love It 7 shadowing closely behind. The two front runners collided, fighting for room at the Taylor Bay mark, and a loud discussion was heard as the battle continued towards Rose Bay.
On the final beat to the finish Seve Jarvin decided to join the party and overtook Appliances on Line at the death to cross second. Thurlow Fisher Lawyers was next across in a tight finish to head Yandoo and DeLonghi. Thurlow Fisher Lawyers is the Club Champion for 2011-12 and Yandoo won the Club Handicap Pointscore to wrap up the season.
