Only seven brave souls showed up for a full Sunday's racing, despite the threat of rain and high winds, neither of which materialised. Fitting in a total of 17 races before the blustery SW winds ran out in the afternoon, PRO Warren Rock kept the skippers busy and many thanks to the many volunteers who ensured the day ran smoothly. A closely fought contest provided a good spectacle, with the lead changing places regularly throughout the day. The notoriously fickle Jackadder winds did not disappoint and often position on the water was as important as skills and setup. Rob Mews took out the newly re-purposed Perth Classic trophy ahead of Craig Taylor and Edgar Vitte. Chef Peter Greeve provided a great lunch of snaggers, onions and rolls off the BBQ.
