Andy HORTON and Brad NICHOL (USA) led round the weather mark with CAYARD left back in fifth. However the 1988 Star World Champion and vastly experienced sailor raced back through the fleet to second. At the final windward mark HORTON still led. CAYARD jibed away and came back to nip first place at the line and take the title. HORTON finished second and John DANE and Austin SPERRY (USA) finished third and wrapped up the second overall spot.
At the start of race six, with the first and second place decided, there was a tight four way battle for third between HORTON, Canadian Olympic silver medallists Ross MacDONALD and Mike WOLFS (CAN), recent Bacardi Cup winners Mark MENDELBLATT and Mark STRUBE (USA) and Rick MERRIMAN and Steve MITCHELL (USA). The start line was stacked up with the four contenders jostling for position.
With HORTON dropping back at the start, the race turned into a three way fight between MacDONALD (who held the slight points advantage), MENDELBLATT and MERRIMAN. MERRIMAN came out on top taking the bullet and third place overall, with just a single point separating him from MENDELBLATT, who finished second in race six. Fourth in race six secured fifth for MacDONALD and ensured there was not a complete American whitewash of the top five.
