With only one race scheduled in the light conditions, Barlo Plastics had to prevent the Swedish team aboard SEB from winning the race, in order to clinch the regatta and the series.
With only one race scheduled in the light conditions, Barlo Plastics had to prevent the Swedish team aboard SEB from winning the race, in order to clinch the regatta.

Barlo Plastics started match racing SEB four minutes prior to the race start, and managed to pin the Swedish team outside the left hand end of the start line. Both yachts started late although Barlo Plastics rounded the top mark in first place, with SEB trailing the fleet, now reduced to just five boats as the Babbalaas and Bounder had made the decision to return to the marina in the light conditions.

On the finish line, Barlo Plastics took second place behind the French boat Faster K-Yote II. Skipper Stead said, "Covering the Swedish team was always our priority, ahead of actually winning the race. We had to ensure that SEB didn't win the final race of the Series so we executed this well, and we also seemed to be quite quick in the light airs."

Series Results









1st Barlo Plastics 21 points
2nd Babbalaas 15 points
