The fourth and final race of the Concierge Traveller Spring Series was undertaken in perfect sunny conditions marking the first day of spring.

With an early morning westerly breeze it was a cool morning as competitors made their way out to the start line at Point Piper. With a warm and sunny day eventuating, there was a period of no breeze before the conditions swung around to the north east and built to a perfect 10-15 knots just before the starting signal.

Each week there is a draw for the weekly divisional winners which are in the running for a $500 Concierge Traveller voucher which this week was won by Clavida, skippered by Christian Holle, placed first in PHS Division 2.

As this was the final race of the Concierge Traveller Spring Series the divisional placegetters for the overall series were all in the running for a Concierge Traveller voucher valued at $5000. The winner was drawn after the overall trophies were given out with the winner being D McDonnell and R Blanc-Ramos, skippers of Applejack who was placed second in PHS Division 3 (non spinnaker).

Within the four race series there was also a prize for the best placed female skipper which was won by Kate McGregor and her team on Sea Change, with their worst result in the being a second place.
