Melges builder Heath Walters was thrilled with Kaito's success, especially after the boat's late start. Most of the Heaven Can Wait fleet had already crossed the Raffertys Resort start line when Kaito was spotted rapidly approaching. Kaito came racing in under spinnaker and managed to carry it across the start line until forced to tack when she got close to the eastern shore. She crossed the line at least 30 seconds behind the last boat in the fleet.



Heath Walters received a model cannon as a trophy.

Skipper Jim Walsh was similarly pleased with the success of his sportsboat Woof. He joked that he had asked his dog to come up with a name for his boat, then gave a lovely speech thanking Mannering Park Yacht Club for hosting the race. He commented that small suburban clubs like MPYC are made of people rather than bricks and mortar, and applauded the herculean efforts of race organiser Shaun Lewicki. Walsh said that the One Lap Dash was a great event for sportsboats and he would be bringing his boat back next year.





Team GUE was still out racing as part of the 24 hour course so were unable to attend the presentation.
