While the clean course was an advantage for Spookie, it was far from a run away victory. Interlodge (above, right), the 44-footer owned by Austin and Gwen Fragomen, kept pace with Spookie all the way around the 12-mile racecourse. Once both yachts' times were corrected based on the handicaps carried by each, the winning margin was just 14 seconds—about two boat lengths. Not a lot of room for error in a race that took nearly and hour and a quarter for the fastest boats to complete. The remainder of the fleet trickled in over the course of 25 minutes and while many of the boats had a significant advantage according to the ratings, none could come close to Spookie's corrected time. In third place was the Swan 42 Blazer, skippered by Chris Culver, which finished just 5 second in front of Victory '83, Dennis Williams' 12-Metre, and 54 seconds in front of John Hele's Daring, another Swan 42.
