It was clear from the start that Hank McGregor was taking an inshore line while Dawid Mocke went deep offshore.  For some time it appeared that Dawid had made the right choice as he clearly moved ahead of the rest of the field, riding the 2-3m deep sea swells.

However, as the race progressed, the inshore group started to gain until they were in equally good runs - and the advantage swung in their favour.

By the time the paddlers approached the finish line, the offshore group had fallen behind and Hank won by just over 30 seconds, with Clint Pretorius crossing the line second.  Dawid Mocke was another 33 seconds behind.

Cape Town's Alexa Cole took an early small lead on NZ paddler Katie Pocock and maintained her lead to the finish.
