New Zealand pair Aaron GOODMANSON and Alister ROWLANDS gave the home fans something to celebrate by taking victory in the the final race to make it two bullets on the trot and to safeguard their third position.
GOODMANSON was delighted with the result: 'We had a great lead-up to this regatta and we're pretty stoked with the result. We went to Adelaide for the Aussie Nationals in January and finished fourth there, and then had a good build-up regatta with a fifth at the New Zealand Nationals last week... Our aim was to try and finish in the top ten in all of the races. Really the wind came in for us a little too late. We were hoping for stronger breeze, but it only came in the last couple of days.'
