2018 Cup Regatta Tony Blake Trophy status. 

Corrected time congratulations to Cyan, Manuka Rere and Ettrick. Frances took out line honours, An easterly shift to her local north wind sent Frances 10 degrees off the rhumb line and to the end wrong end of St. Kilda break water. Cost her the 5 minutes to make a podium finish. Most of the following fleet were knocked down from the Rhumb but nowhere as bad as Frances. Sometimes the fleet leaders don’t get the breaks. The smart money was on Ettrick and Avian who tacked early after the last rounding mark and pick off Snow Goose with the northerly shift. Martini almost laid the mark.
Manuka Rere is leading the series aggregate with Dingo up front in the consistency. Martini and Ettrick are dead heating in the Cup Regatta Tony Blake aggregate
