Among the many 'Australia Day' active participants over the past weekend was the 18-Footer-League with races 3 and 4 of the New South Wales Championship, part of the Club Championship of this season. The light and unconstant breeze on Sunday provoked continuous position changes. At the end of the day, 'Thurlow Fisher Lawyers' with Michael Coxon AUS had the upper hand on 'Coopers 62-Rag & Famish Hotel' (Jack Macartney AUS) and 'Asko Appliances' (Marcus Ashley-Jones AUS). The report with video about race 3.
Race 4 was sailed on Monday, the Australian National Day, and 'Gotta love it 7' with Seve Jarvin AUS, abandoning on Sunday after a start collision, was the winner. The first five teams of the overall ranking are separated by 3 points only, an exciting situation before the last race on next Sunday.

No substantial changes in the distances between the boats on the South Indian Ocean yesterday, but today, 'Neutrogena' (Altadill ESP/Munoz CHI) has probably the possibility to reduce the 171 miles deficit on 'Cheminées Poujoulat' (Stamm SUI/Le Cam FRA) as a low wind zone is in the way, and 'Neutrogena' on a more southern course along the exclusion zone (below the 45th parallel) has a shorter distance to Cape Horn.

Guillermo Altadill ESP/José Munoz CHI have rounded the most southern point of Africa as second during the past night. Vanishing winds on the Indian Ocean and the safety line on the 45th Parallel not allowing any strategic escape have slowed down Bernard Stamm SUI/Jean Le Cam FRA. Their advance on Altadill/Munoz was reduced to 137 miles this morning and is shrinking even more.
