From the start, Space Monkeys, Truck and Pleasure & Pain got away well with Blowflies in hot pursuit. Mainiac had a problem with their jib sheet which needed to be fixed so the were a little behind. Connor and Dylan on Virtual Reality are really sailing well in their first few races in the Flying 11. Prawn Stars seemed to be having issues deciding who would be skipper but eventually sorted out trap harnesses to get involved.
Truck led around the first mark closely followed by Pleasure & Pain and Space Monkeys with the others not far back. Space Monkeys decided to stay high on the reach which didn't work out well so dropped back a little. All were having exciting reaches.
Truck extended their lead during the race while Space Monkeys caught back up to Pleasure & Pain. Mainiac caught up to Blowflies. However at the start of the last lap a thunderstorm and lightning hit the course with some boats deciding it was better to head back to the beach.
Final results were Truck first, Pleasure & Pain second and Blowflies third.
