"We were winning the last race, but gave up our lead when we went off to cover Moonshine," said Emery, "that was our strategy all along." But for today's second and final race, there was an extra wrinkle for Eclipse; all the races they'd won they'd started at the pin, and their worst two finishes came after boat-end starts. "The logical choice was to start at the pin where we had lots of room and could just foot off and go fast," said Emery. Once we'd extended enough we could tack and cross the fleet." Eclipse lead down the run, but on the second beat focused on Moonshine, allowing Anthony Leggett's Conundrum to win the race, but second was all they needed to win the series.
