Podium finishers spread throughout the fleet

It was anyones race when it came to divisional winners and podium finishers. The battles within the race continued and raged throughout the fleet

With so many yachts on the race course, battling varying conditions, the different divisions and rating categories saw many yachts excel as they forged their way through the 90-nautical-mile race.

ORCi saw Gordon Ketelby's TP52 Zen placed first both overall and Division 1 ahead of a string of fellow grand-prix TP52s. Zen was the first of the 52ft yachts to exit the harbour after the start but was unable to keep the lead as they made their way down the coast and around Flinders Islet.

PHS saw the TP52 dominance continue with first in both overall and Division 1 claimed by Cruising Yacht Club of Australia's Rear Commodore, Dr. Sam Haynes' Celestial, with the following three positions also TP52s.

Division two across all three of the rating categories (IRC, ORCi and PHS) was a clean sweep for first, second and third placings. First was Mark Griffith's Showtime, followed in second place by Cruising Yacht Club of Australia's Vice Commodore, Noel Cornish AM's St Jude, with newcomers Marus Grimes Insomnia in third.
