The eight Tanner Cup boats headed out for another great days sailing on the Tauranga Harbour. There was a 15 to 18 knot SW.

It was all on for the fith race. This race also started with an incoming tide and 18knots of SW breeze. At the first mark Kate NH had a handy lead with Cole BOP and Jackson KeonNH boat for boat down the screaming reach. Jackson went for a quick Swim and Kate was a little consevative on her gybe; so Cole closed in at the wing mark. Everyone esle enjoyed the downwind blast and had sucessfule gybes. A great windward beat and Kate was just ahead at the windward mark the second time; but Cole slipped ahead with a better mark rounding. They are over a minute ahead of Jackson Keon NH and Harry Haslet A heading for the leeward (and last) mark for the race. At the final mark; Cole was ahead of Kate by 11 secs.
