Race One will be sailed on Saturday February 25 and will be streamed live.

Australians figured in the placings but Russia was the only country to head two divisions.

With one day to go, most divisions are still wide open.

High winds feature in the long range outlook for Sunday, up to 28 knot southerlies.

Bright sunshine and a delightful, steady 10 to 12 knot breeze made racing a joy for all divisions.

The woman had been sailing on the yacht Zangano in August last year when she disappeared, 40 nautical miles south-west of Rarotonga.

The Clyde Challenger was about 400 nautical miles west-south-west of Cape Finisterre when it became dis-masted and lost its rudder due to bad weather.

The 20 knot easterlies of the past two days were replaced by a ghoster at barely 3 knots by midday but worse was to come as a heavy fog drifted over the Bay, obscuring even the mighty Queen Mary 2 which anchored offshore for the day.

The 11th anniversary regatta is just two and a half weeks away and already close to 150 national and international entries have been received.

Light and shifty winds on Geographe Bay made the final day difficult for the skippers.

The event attracted a fleet of 10 boats, and included several Australian Sailing Team and Squad members.

The big boats sailed a 19 mile course around the bay, while the Viper sports boats sailed a series of windward and return races and the M32 catamarans sailed on a match racing course alongside the Busselton jetty.
