Australia Day Regatta.

Fidelis, the line honours winner of the 1966 Sydney Hobart Yacht Race, showed she is still a sprightly racer at the age of 52 by winning line and handicap honours in her division of the 180th Australia Day Regatta.

In the Australia Day Regatta ocean race, from Sydney Harbour to a mark off Botany Bay and return, line honours went to the TP52 Balance, Paul Clitheroe's overall winner of the 71st Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race. On corrected time, however, first place on PHS scoring and the prestigious City of Sydney Sesquicentenary Cup went to Next Light, an X35 skippered yesterday by Mark Rutherford, one of three co-owners, the others being Chris Ryan and Derek Collins.
