Lachie Brewer and Max Paul were 4th and John-Mark Paul and George Richardson were 6th. Hugo Stoner, Madeline Sloane, Madeleine McLeay, Max Giffney and Nathan Stanaway also posted some good consistent results throughout the championship.

While Darcy Robbins was the sole MHYC sailor in the Open Fleet, the Intermediate Fleet included Luke Berlee (who posted a couple of top ten finishes), Edward Hooper, Jeb Barth, Louis Tilly and Sophie Lavis. In the Green Fleet, Oskar Larsen missed the first day but scored 3-1-1 on the Sunday to finish 7th overall.
