The superbly-sailed Rainbow II clung tenaciously to the stern of fleet leader Pacific Sundance to ensure that the Farr boat would never make up the required time on handicap. In the process, Rainbow II burned off her closest boat-for-boat opposition and won on corrected time by a daunting 14m 47s. Bouzaid’s other One Ton Cup winner, Wai Aniwa (1972) bounced back from mast problems to take second place today and move up into second place on overall points. The margins between second and fifth are, however, very small and there will be a lot at stake when the fleet goes to the start line for the final time at 10am on Saturday.
