Two decisive last races

While the struggle had been very close between the two leaders during the three first racing days of Australian F18 National Titles, last two races sailed by light and shifty winds didn’t suit Steven Brewin and Adam Beattie (29,9), when their rivals scored a fourth and a second place, being then crowned 2024 champions with a total of 15 points (two discards).

Mixed teams winners of the day

Adrian Fawcett and Jesse Dobie are the big winners of this last racing day, scoring two bullets, closely followed by James and Emily Henderson getting one second and one third place, these two teams finishing 4th and 5th overall.
