Brian (16) and Kevin Webb (30) mixing it up in the pre-start.

The final race between John Dowler (11) and Ivan Fraser (84).
At the start John tries to push Ivan
up the wrong side of the line
but Ivan slips through ahead.
Ivan keeps John trapped in bad air
on the first windward leg.
John eases ahead but can't tack.
Ivan holds the inside line
and leads around the top mark
and away on the downwind.
John catches in the light airs
and takes the lead and inside
overlap halfway down the leg.
Ivan retakes the lead and is first
around the downwind mark.
Halfway up the beat John takes the lead... and eases ahead.
Ivan manages to split tacks on a shift
and has starboard advantage at the cross.
John goes behind...
and gets an inside overlap at the top mark... and can lead around.
John is away on the downwind. Ivan catches this time... and threatens to get the inside line.
But John holds the lead at
the final mark...
and up the last leg... to take the win.
