A light wind start for Race 3 start. The 10:00am start saw Seabird with Cam smith on the move well across the line to fall into a no wind hole. Martina and Akala had start line approach problems. Cyan made a dramatic appearance to the race committee boat as she crossed the start line. Best pursuit start went to Avian and Ettrick. Kingurra start was at the pin end by a smidgon. Acrospire III had all down on the lee side to start her fleet chase.
