Roger That’s scorecard could have been perfect, if the Sydney sports boat’s brand new little sister Scooter Central, a Melges 20 skippered by Heath Walters, had not surged home with good wind pressure on the final run of today’s last race to claim corrected time victory.

With Cameron Miles at the helm, and co-owners James Mayjor and John Bacon crewing along with Craig Pocklington, Roger That continued its strong form of the first day, while being pushed closely at times by the Victorian Thompson 7 Foam Fast.

Local skipper Cameron Rae’s Thompson 8 Laminar Flow took line honours in all three races, conducted by Royal Geelong Yacht Club on Corio Bay, and is lying second overall with today’s corrected time results of 2-3-3.
