Despite a forecast that suggested a more relaxed final day of racing for the J Class yachts, the Solent turned on a classic sailing day with a building southwester as these four classics went head to head in the western Solent. A massive spectator fleet followed their every move.
The only original J, Velsheda, beat her rivals and her handicap to finish first across the line and to win the regatta overall. On Saturday the yachts re-enact the original America's Cup Race with a east about race around the Isle of Wight.
Crosbie and Dale Lorimer followed the fleet for Friday's race and these are some of their images.
