With the title decided it was left to Mark Krstic and James Lanai of Australia to upset the British monopoly and lead at the top mark of the final race.

There were several close calls and a number of collisions, which just goes to show how tight the racing was.

Archie Massey and Harvey Hillary pulled away from the pack pretty early on, and were able to focus their efforts on hunting down the tear away Aussies, who were ripping it up the course.

This left Roger Gilbert and Ben McGrane, Pascoe and Trusswell, and Andy Partington and Tom Partington competing for third.

On the last beat Massey and Hillary closed the gap on Krstic and Lanati.

The two boats split, with Massey and Hillary footing off under Krstic and Lanati to find some speed.

It was close, but in the end the Australians took first place, punching through the line on starboard, with Massey and Hillary flying across on port seconds later.

Gilbert and McGrane took third, and Andy Partington and Tom Partington in 4th and Truswell and Pascoe in 5th.
