It took Tim Jacobs 19 km and almost an hour and a half of brutal effort to take the lead from Jeremy Cotter in the first downwind race of the Ocean Series.

W Australia: Competitors were treated to an unusually calm Cape in this years running of the King of the Cape. In what was a rare occurrence for this part of the coast, the usual strong south westers and big swell were replaced by moderate offshores and flat seas.

The thought of US$1,000 waiting for him in Dubai was definitely going through Tim Jacobs' mind as he powered toward the finish of the Lion Island Challenge, just edging out Jeremy Cotter for the win.  It was a hard-fought victory, but one that will definitely have Tim feeling confident in the lead-up to the Dubai Shamaal.
