Class B racing was too close to predict the winner going into the final 2 races today, Ray Mitchell’s Swan 411 Accomplice (GBR) put in serious effort today to pull through into first.
Leader of Class C home to some of the most traditional Swans has the most consistent set of results across all the fleets, British owner Chris Frost racing with his daughter on their Swan 36 Finola has much to celebrate as new European Champions with a record win in all races.
