The final round of the original round robin series was finished at the beginning of the day.
The top two teams, including defending champion Newport Harbor Yacht Club, which is undefeated and Cruising Yacht Club of Australia, with a loss only to NHYC, were excused. They were able to watch the rest of the day's competition. Both teams stayed for a while, returning to the dock after most of the rest of the matches were completed. NHYC will have the right to choose between the second, third and fourth place teams for their first match in the Semi-Finals to be held on Sunday.
The teams which placed third through sixth competed in spirited matches, ending with Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron, with Bradley Farrand at the helm, placing third, Royal Yachting Association, skipper Andrew Shaw in fourth. In fifth place and so out of the Semi-Finals were St Thomas Yacht Club, Taylor Canfield, helmsman, and, in sixth, Southern Yacht Club, with Patrick Ryan at the helm.
