The pressure of the final day’s racing took a toll on Skip Jack skipper Bill Feore, but despite posting his worst results of the regatta he rallied to clinch the Gobox S80 series.
Feore won the series with a score of 13, edging ever so slightly ahead of Outlaw, skippered by David Judge, on 14 points.
The Hobsons Bay Yacht Club sailor finished second and fifth yesterday, after taking a clean sweep in the two windward/leewards on Saturday.
“After winning the two races on Saturday we just wanted to cover Outlaw, so that was strange for us, we sailed the boat and not the breeze,’’ Feore said.
“Geelong can be so tricky, you can go out on a flier and come up trumps. Lucky for us our tactic paid.”
Marek skipper Bas Huibers edged ahead of previous series leader Redstick Revolution, skippered by Peter Stephens, to claim the third and final podium place.
Meanwhile, the Hasting Yacht Club’s Noelex 30s continued to reign supreme in the Geelong Taxi Network series.
Leda Free skippered by David Conway claimed the overall win with a clean sweep in all four races across the three-day regatta, the largest keelboat regatta in the southern hemisphere.
Maitresse skipper Mark Halton finished second in every race to place second overall on eight points.
Peter Kalin’s No Strings Attached from Albury Wodonga Yacht Club finished third on 12 points, followed by Fleurieu Warrior from Royal Geelong Yacht Club, skippered by Trevor Brown in fourth on 16 points.
