 Big Friday dawned for the final day of racing, and the fleet were greeted with 20knots on the race course, allowing the 14's to stretch their legs with some big breeze sailing. McGrane/​Hughes won the first race. The breeze continued to increase through out the day, with the second race being a rollercoaster ride in breeze gusting over 25knots which was won by Dave Dobrijevic and Neale Jones. Big Friday dawned for the final day of racing, and the fleet were greeted with 20knots on the race course, allowing the 14's to stretch their legs with some big breeze sailing.

 Going into the final day with just a single long distance race scheduled the Partingtons had done enough to be sailing a victory lap whilst 2nd to 5th were nearly on equal points after discards kicked. The race consisted of a shifty tactical 5km beat up the shore, a monster 10km downwind blast and a final flukey 5km beat back to the start finish. At the start of the beat normal service was resumed with all the usual candidates in a tight tussle led by the Partingtons from Georg and Eike. As the fleet worked its way up the lake Roger and Adam and Sam and Toby made the best of the gusts and shifts to open out a convincing lead by the weather mark. The downwind will go down in legend, 10km of 'down to the knots' screaming downwind blastging dodging windsurfers,​ kitesurfers,​ cats and other skiffs on this busy weekend. Roger held on to take the bullet ahead of a fast closing Glen to snatch second place off him overall by just 1 point. Sam and Georg faded in the later stages of the race ending up 4th and 5th overall respectively. ​ Going into the final day with just a single long distance race scheduled the Partingtons had done enough to be sailing a victory lap whilst 2nd to 5th were nearly on equal points after discards kicked.
