The final race on Sunday 4th January 2015 resulted in a convincing win for "ATB Morton" sailed by Ben Bruniges from the Belmont Club.  They raced off to an early lead in the 14-22 knot  East-North-East breeze and were never headed.  Second place went to "Fire Stopping" (Joe Turner) from the Manly Club from "Sutech Building Consultants" (Daniel Turner) also from the Manly Club.  Both boats had a close dual for most of the race. 

Overall winner of the series "Brydens Lawyers" sailed by Lee Knapton and crewed by Peter Mackie and Ricky Bridge from the Manly Club, were running 4th in the race when they set their spinnaker around the top mark the last time only to have the top of their mast break.  Luckily, they already had the series won after race 6 and were able to use race 7 as their drop heat.  They finished on 16 points with placings of 1-4-1-3-4-3-DNF.
