Images from Race 5, 2009 Flying Fifteen Worlds - as the seabreeze filled in, showing Port Phillip at its finest.

Racing was very close throughout most of the fleet, and there were several instances of groups of five yachts or more crossing the finish line within a couple of boatlengths of each other. Mark roundings were something else again with this level of congestion and the fresh seabreeze.
