Racing on the final day of the Mark Foy Regatta, for 18ft skiffs started in a light to moderate S/E breeze with a forecast to increase significantly. The breeze did not rise as expected which left the conditions ripe for a low end two rig day.

15 boats from three countries, New Zealand, Australia and USA competed in the series held in conjunction with the 12ft Skiff Interdominion.

C-Tech (Alex vallings) held a one point lead overall over DeLongi Rabbitohs with a further three points back to CST.
C-Tech lead out from the start followed by CST with a tight group of DeLongi Rabbitohs,Yamaha, The Kitchen Maker close behind. Maersk Line was recalled at the start and trailed the front group at the first mark. C-Tech and CST battled for the lead and the Maersk Line caught the second group to join a very close race for third place. On the last upwind CST tacked inside C-Tech and with a slight left hand shift lifted over C-Tech to round the final upwind mark slightly ahead and held on to finish first.

Maersk Line got through Yamaha and DeLongi Rabbitohs to take third place. Second place for C-Tech was good enough to win the overall championship and CST's win in the heat with DeLongi Rabbitohs in fourth place in the heat moved CST to second place overall. C-Tech's overall win in the regatta is a great outcome for the NZ fleet and augurs well for NZ's participation in the JJ Giltinan championship in Sydney next month.
