The leading thrre – Martin Byrne, Andrew Craig and Don O’Donoghu – have abit of separation on the fleet but they rounded inside a boat length of each other so Martin has his work cut out to hang onto his lead.

Fourth to sixth – Tim Tavinor, Richard Goodbody and Klaus Diederichs – also rounded close together and with separation on the following fleet so there’s another good dog fight to watch on the last beat.
