1515hrs: Lauded as the shortest-fastest race of the series with anyone in the running for the top honours is seeing exactly that. With Comanche currently in the lead for Line Honours, the super-maxi is also currently holding some rarer accolades for a yacht of it's size as IRC and PHS Division leaders as well! Their close rival, Black Jack is the only competitor holding them back for a clean sweep of the honours, as they currently hold ORCi. Expect to see this change, however, as the smaller boats in the fleet take advantage of the fresh winds home.
- Five competitors are around Bird Island, the northernmost point of the race
- After the supers, Ichi Ban is next on the IRC leaderboard, followed by Primitive Cool, Yarrandi and Voodoo
- After starting in 5-10 knots from the nor 'east, the sea breeze is continuing to build with gusts of up to 20 knots recorded by BOM
- All forty starters are still racing, with no withdrawals at this stage
