Wild Oates XI has once again won line honours but, as yet, no overall winner has been announced.
Local sailor, Christian Ripard, was this year on board NIKATA - a Swan 82 - and they were 11th over the line behind VARUNA and from what I have heard are 2nd in Class though I cannot say that is definitely correct. Below are some great shots taken from REGATTA NEWS.

Glad I am not on board !
