This regatta has been a rollercoaster ride for SWINTON, who represents the South of Perth Yacht Club, 'We just went out there in the morning with good attitude,' was his answer to the revival of his fortunes.
Having led at the end of the first day, then had a bad second day, he won six races out of seven sailed today, 'We made sure we competed hard for everything,' he said, 'We're pretty tired now though, it's been a long day.'
SUTHERLAND, who took over the top rung of the leaderboard after the second day said, 'It started out well today, then we just fell off towards the end a little bit.
'It was good racing, we enjoyed the conditions, the team's coming together well, we just need to put the wins in the bag, I guess, it's getting quite tight towards the top.'
The racing was conducted in the familiar Perth weather pattern, with the first flight of the day sailed on a light and shifty south easterly, before the seabreeze filled in, building to 15 knots.
