The fleet was a veritable armada of former World Champions in Etchells and other classes, America‚Äôs Cup stars, round the world ocean racers, as well as Olympic legends. Racing concluded on Tuesday 16, and RSYS Members took two podium places: 
1st Iron Lotus AUS1442 Tom King, David Edwards, Greg O'Shea, Ivan Wheen (pictured below)      
3rd Havoc AUS1461 Iain Murray, Grant Simmer, Richard Allanson.


Dave Edwards commented 'We are really happy with the result! We're looking forward to the Worlds next week - the competition will definitely ratchet up a notch - there will be more than 90 boats on the start line and the Squadron will be well represented.'
