By then Lafayette was right behind them and tacked off quickly after the mark. When she tacked back on a slight shift she had to dip Aluette and it was anybody's race. The wind then went slightly further to the left and when Lafayette came back on the finish layline, Aluette was able to tack underneath her. Lafayette might have been able to roll over Aluette, but Yquem then tacked right on Lafayette to prevent it happening as it was in Yquem's interests for Aluette to be between them. They finished only seconds apart, over two minutes behind Fleur sailing her own race serenely in front.
Vision led all the way in the Sira Cup fleet, finishing seventh behind Gefion. Bona was next and has now retaken the Sira Cup lead as she won reinstatement from her previous race's OCS as the RC had mistaken her for another boat. Bona managed to show with witnesses that she was in a different part of the line than the RC had said.
Amorevita, complete with new spreaders, beat Catina VI for the first time to take second in the Coupe Cartier fleet behind Bona.
