As per the forecast, the ‘Fremantle Doctor’ made an appearance on the second day of the Championship to provide 32 competitors with the sort of sailing conditions Fremantle is renowned for.

By the final top mark rounding, Graeme Taylor and his team of James Mayo and Richard Allanson were really stretching their legs pulling well clear of the fleet.

Martin Hill and his team, Mark Langford, Julian Plante and Joachim Aschenbrenner also pulled clear in second with the rest fighting over third.

The final run was typical ‘Freo Doctor’ full on screaming with boats recording boat speeds in the region of 15 - 18 knots.

As crews rode the waves across the finish line the audible whoops, could clearly be heard from the committee boat.

Graeme Taylor recorded his first win of the regatta to move 5 points clear overall.

Martin Hill crossed second to go third overall and Peter Chappell and his local team of Graeme Johnson and Luke Payne sailed an excellent race to record their best result of the regatta a 3rd.
