The last day of the Australian Minnow Titles saw the wind gods deliver some much needed cooling breeze, after a cold change swept across the course area earlier, it left in its wake a testing 15-22kt + breeze. With the remaining three races to be completed, it was another tough day in the classroom!!
The highlight of the day would have been Kieran Shortz from Darwin making a gutsy Port end start in race 9 over the fleet of 61. Coming into race 10 of series, the fleet was down to around 35 with many opting for the shore as the last race was the toughest of the day with a longer course selected to end the series.
