The final day of the Farr 40 One Design Trophy was sailed on Sydney Harbour and PRO Phil Yeomans got four races away resulting in Jeff Carter's Edake winning their third Farr 40 regatta in a row.

Competition between the top three; Edake, Outlaw and Double Black was tighter than ever and it was right down to the last race where Edake secured the regatta win. The team are on a roll and peaking right on schedule as the hot favourite for the upcoming NSW State Title and National Championships.

Carter was happy to take away another win. "The starts today were awesome for the entire fleet. There was one start where it looked like everyone was on the line with speed at the same time as the gun went off. Then it was a matter of moving to the first shift and being able to take advantage of that over our fellow competitors. The fleet racing was very close all day with any number of different boats leading at any time. This actually was confirmed by the results, where the top two boats were mid fleet in two of the four races."

The father and son team of Tom and Alan Quick divided and very nearly conquered today with Alan taking over the helm and Tom spectating. When Quick (Snr) quickly punched out the first win of the day, there was cheering from Tom on the support boat, which was quickly backed up with banter from his fellow rivals retorting, "He's better than you are."

PRO Phil Yeomans and the race management team did a great job getting the fourth race away, just before the final warning signal of 1500hrs. "Excellent sailing conditions compared to yesterday and it was great to watch. We had two races at a course of 200 with a little shift and two with the breeze shifting left, which allowed for four races." Yeomans said.

Third place went to Rob Pitts and Double Black, who had a really consistent regatta, except for just one race. They were unlucky being caught on the wrong side of one ferry, forcing them to tack away, only to be caught by another ferry passing in the other direction.

The strong Australian fleet of ten boats are prepped and more competitive than ever for the pièce de résistance, the NSW State Title held at Middle Harbour on 22 & 23 February followed by the National Championships, John Calvert-Jones Cup held at RSYS in March.
