The Melges 32 competition was tight, the fleet were always within close proximity. By the conclusion of Saturdays racing Tasmanian Greg Prescott 2 Unlimited had a win and three second places on the scoreboard leaving the door open for other teams to challenge. Prescott slammed it closed on Sunday finishing both races in first place and securing the regatta. The 2 Unlimited crew included tactician Darren Jones, Mark Edmonds, Billy Sykes, James Corrie, Mark Jeffery, Julian Salter and Oliver Nicholas. 

Pittwater rivals Martin Cross If and Chris Way Easy Tiger III tousled with 2 Unlimited both winning races. They fought it out for the

remainder of the regatta one point separating them after the six race series, If in second place and Easy Tiger III third place.
