Nip and tuck until the finish covering each other allowing the 2016 World Champion, local McCrea YC sailor, Mark Bulka to take the bullet. Jono Neate quietly sailing in clear air took second with Jason Beebe bringing up the rear in third.
Jason Beebe, current World Champion, is dominating the competition and big start lines. Stretching his overall lead with 7th, 1st and 2nd giving him a four point difference from fellow Aussie, Scott Cunningham.
It's official! It's a two horse race - everyone expected the duel between Bulka and Beebe - well they have it! Two points separating them after the discard came into play after Day Three of the Contender Worlds hosted by McCrae Yacht Club, Australia.
