Number 4 and 5, were both Norwegian, and ended both on 53 counting points. Number 4, «IF» had a lower total sum before deleting the weakest single race result than «Sira».

Dramatic last day

With winds up to 20+, the conditions were quite challaging the last day og the race, and many of the yachts that did not have an opportunity to advance, chose to stay inshore.

Finnish "Silja" came back to the yacht club with broken mast before the start,and H. M King Harald´s "Sira", was fighting for å top three position in the Sira class until her mast came down on the second cross leg in the second race. Fortunately there were no human injury.
