There followed two hectic reaches with broaches and capsizes and gear tested to the limits. The gybe mark was particularly difficult in the 8 foot seas. A run and a beat followed and at the shortened course finish the order was Hart then Goacher, Apthorp and Peter Gale of Australia fourth.
The overall position is extremely open with the day's leaders Barry and Sue Parkin finishing in the late teens and Geoff and Tom Bayliss also finishing out of the first 10.
