Lead up to Race 1: Quantum Racing which has the same tactical team of skipper Ray Roberts mainsheet Jamie Wilmot and World title winning tactician Steve McConaghy aboard will start as the favourite based on their win in 2006.

However the Quantum Racing team will be forced to retain a consistent all angle sailing speed to protect their winning chances not only against Beau Geste but also be aware that former Sydney-Hobart race winner Bob Steel has the crew on Quest who have the hard racing experience to force the championship battle into a three boat match race.

RACE 1: At the top mark Quantum Racing, sailing in canting keel configuration with a canard lifting her upwind rather than with centre locked keel as she has done in some recent regattas, was controlling Quest as the two leaders came in on port tack. Quantum Racing slid around the mark with Quest a length astern.

Alan Brierty’s Limit came in on port tack also, but swung too wide and Michael Hiatt’s Cookson 50 Living Doll shot through inside her.
Quantum Racing extended slightly as she crossed towards Armit Island.

The breeze was continuing to build to 18’s.

Quantum Racing finished first overall in IRC ahead of Quest, with Beau Geste third ahead of Living Doll and Geoff Pearson’s Archambault 35 Arajilla in fifth place.
