Switzerland, Derry~Londonderry~Doire and OneDLL have received their pennants at the Race 7 prizegiving in Brisbane.

Vicky Ellis and the team of Switzerland have accepted their first podium winner’s pennant after coming first in the race from Hobart. The team moves up to fifth in the overall standings.

The crew of Derry~Londonderry~Doire accepted their second pennant of the race, and are now third on the overall leader board.

OneDLL, who was third, keeps its overall lead at the top of the race standings.

Switzerland skipper Vicky Ellis said: “All the crew worked incredibly hard to achieve this, but it was still a big surprise for me. We were very disappointed we just missed out on the Scoring Gate points by a few boat lengths and it spurred us on and gave us a real determination to win. We are also delighted with our extra two Ocean Sprint points and with moving up to fifth in the standings.”
