Truswell and Pascoe are pretty comfortable at the top of the fleet, but silver and bronze is still far from being decided.

Race 6 featured a black flag, in an effort to encourage a clean start, which it did successfully, with no boats over the line.

Archie Massey and Harvey Hillary led the fleet, with Truswell and Pascoe in a close second.

Once again the British and Australian teams dominated the top ten, and the boats were having to fight tooth and nail for their positions.

Massey and Hillary were hijacked by Quiberon Bay weed at their last leeward mark.

Despite this, they still finished in first.

Trusswell and Pascoe, once again demonstrated clinical professionalism in their racing, to take another second to add to an impressive set of results for the series.

Neale Jones and Ed Fitzgerald had managed to get into third when they suffered some major breakages.

They finished the race in 11th, steering the boat holding onto the rudder case, after the tiller broke away at the leeward mark.

Roger Gilbert and Ben McGrane sailed a strong race, and crossed in third, which means that there are now only three points between second and third.
