There are some close classes going into the final race day. Slap on sunblock and hold on to your hats! Three of the four GC 32s are tied on points (16),  the same situation is in the Maxi class with Bella Mente and Numbers tied on points (15). In the J/70 class, 3 points separate Calvi Network and Helly Hansen. In J/88,  only 2 points sit between Deviation and Touch2Play . Wahoo!
