The challenge at Canbury - Yates Cup 2011 .
Crewed by Steve Bartlett and Phil Preston in Spindrift (14), he had a ding-dong battle with Atlantis (15) helmed by Julian Smith, who outsailed Spindrift at the Canbury mark, leaving Hunter to re-round it after colliding with the buoy.
Atlantis maintained her lead at Lensbury but Spindrift was never far astern and swept ahead at Canbury the next time round to make sure of victory on the line.
