Division 1 and 2 south of Williamstown, whilst Division 2 and 3 were racing off St Kilda to the east.


Winds abated as predicted, with a softening seaway, as Division 2 and 3 got underway in around 11knots. This was short lived as wind strength resumed to the mid 20's for the remainder of racing. Though most divisions had secured
their overall winners, competitors still enjoyed a day on the water in fluctuating 20 - 25 knots of balmy NNW breeze.

In Division 3, Michael Manson's Young Lion clinched their win overall with victory on the water, with bullets in IRC and AMS.


Race officials had hoped for a second race however, the anticipated westerly change arrived and subsequent squalling winds and rain called for an early end to racing.
