Elliott 770 Real Deal in full race mode in the light airs shortly after the start in the Coastal Classic. The fleet was led out of the harbour by Elliott 45 Maverick who sailed a great race at the head of the fleet but eventually parked up off Cape Brett. Hydroflow was the first Elliott yacht to Russell, finishing 3rd on the line. Real Deal was 1st on line and handicap in Div 4 with Elliott 15 Tourer Kiwi Coyote taking the double in the Cruising Division and Elliphunk winning line and handicap in Div 3.
