Victory For Victoire at Lexus Lincoln Week

Darryl Hodgkinson's Victoire claimed her second bullet of the regatta by taking out today's long race ahead of rival Reverie. It was all sweet for the Sydney based champion Beneteau First 45 who pulled away from the fleet on the start line and was determined to hold her ground.

Clever tactics in the14-18 knot south-east breeze that varied little in direction were the order of the day especially after Geoff Boettcher's Reichel Pugh 51 Secret Men's Business copped an unwelcome close up and personal from Lucette. The altercation meant it was a long night in the protest room before the race committee ruled against Chris Pratt's Lucette, the local boat from the Royal South Australian Yacht Squadron.
