The final series for Silver Fleet was sailed today, giving the Gold Fleet sailors a day of rest before their two days of racing to decide the Access Liberty and IFDS Single-Person World Championships.

Breezes were light and shifty when sailors arrived on the course and in Race 1, there were times when they were barely making way against the 2 plus knots of tide. A change of course for the second windward went unnoticed by a number of sailors and rearranged a few placings. Krista Bailey (AUS) sailed a solid race and crossed first, followed by Ross Miller (NZL) and Michael Jones (NZL).

A gentle 5 knots of wind had settled in at 240 degrees for the second race and the tide was gradually abating. 13 year old Angus MacGregor (AUS), who scored a DNF in the first race of the day, managed a clean start with plenty of speed and led around the course. Krista Bailey (AUS), Michael Jones (NZL) and Sally Wenley (NZL) kept close behind with a gowing gap to the rest of the fleet.

Servo sailor Bill Bradley (AUS) made a lightning start to Race 3 and led the young Australian, Angus MacGregor around the first three marks. But MacGregor found better wind on the final run and crossed a boat length ahead of his more experienced rival.

With the breeze freshening to 5-8 knots, the sailors and Race Officer Peter Carr (NZL) were keen to get another race in before the 3pm cut-off. MacGregor managed another good start and had built a 15 boat length lead after the first lap. At the end he was followed home by Sally Wenley (NZL) and Ross Miller (NZL).

Angus MacGregor’s three bullets in the final series was not enough though, with another Australian, Krista Bailey from Mornington, Victoria, sailing more consistently throughout the the 7 heats counted to take the Silver Fleet championship by 3 points. A tie-break for second was broken in favour of MacGregor, with Michael Jones the sole Kiwi in the top three. Bill Bradley (AUS) was the top Servo sailor.
