Christine Hansen writes “Final results are not yet available due to a number of protests. However the Racing finally began today in light winds around 1.45 pm, however the Saunders brothers from Tauranga have won the regatta after a clear 1st placing and a 4th. Snow-Hansen and Tuke went into the day 2 points up, but this was eroded after returning to start line when they mistakenly thought they'd been over the line; once again they made a good recovery but. having got up into 2nd, they lost their wind on the downward leg and were overtaken by Goodwin and Coltman. This gave them a 3rd placing which was followed by a drop which put them on equal points with Thomas and Jason, but 2nd on countback. Susannah Pyatt and Danielle have secured third position - full results will follow as soon after protest time as possible”.
