As tight as the J/35 class is, it isn't the tightest class in the regatta. After four races, three Farr 40s are tied on points for first place with 10 points. Tom Neill's Nitemare is first with Owen Kratz's Joss second and Bob Hughes' Heartbreaker in third. Should either of those three have a bad race, Brian Jackman's Pendragon, currently in fourth with 16 points, will be waiting to steal a spot on the podium. Other tight races include the Sydney 38/Farr 395 Level class, whether Robin Munden's Serenissima and Shawn O'Neill's Eagle are tied for first, the 1D35 class where three points separate the top three boats, the Level 114-123 class where just one point separates the top three boats, and the 21-boat J/105 fleet where six points separates the top five boats.
