Final three races held today at Wangi RSL Amateur Sailing Club. Glenn Ashby got his skills back at the end of the regatta to win the event with 3 more consecutive bullets. Brewin had a great performance with 5 first places for him, and only the last day he got a 5th & 7th that put out his chances for the title . Need to confirm today's winds conditions.

Third place for Stephen Brayshaw , who finished 1pt ahead Nathan Outteridge. 4th overall for David Brewer & 5th for Brad Collet. Top 4 Exploder D3 , Brad on Dna F1.

The Australian fleet gathered 50 boats on the start line, showing the good health of the Class locally and the success of having both foiling & floating fleets racing together. Pity indeed the lack of photos for such massive event.
