All boats finished within 14 minutes of each other in a race that went for 90 minutes. The larger boats were given a better chance for line honours with the long windward beat to the finish.
Fly by night was set to win crossing on starboard ahead of First light but came to a halt when pinching just that fraction too much attempting to cross the line whilst the wind was shifting for the worse. First Light flew past Fly by night to get the hooter and Tub Thumper made the most of the lead boat in irons.
