"We’ve got a bunch of good guys from Geelong who aren’t necessarily pros, but they’ve sailed together for quite a while. We work well together and it’s a pretty calm operation. After a mediocre start we were the lead boat and we just had to cover from there," Shogun V’s tactician Steve McConaghy said.

Stephen Ainsworth's Loki is performing consistently and has racked up four podium finishes from five races so far in some of the closest racing ever seen in IRC A at Race Week. Ainsworth has handed the helm over to Gordon Maguire this week and is sharing mainsheet duties with Michael Fountain.
