Barkow wins at the finish over Souter by a nose, into finals

Souter, left, leads Barkow on last beat

After a lead change each leg, Souter passed Barkow on the last beat then Barkow slowly sailed into the Australians downwind on port jibe and they jibed simultaneously 2/3 the way down. Barkow pulled even with Souter as they bore off dead downwind to the finish.

It was a pensive moment for everyone as Barkow’s yellow flag was raised and s shout of relief was heard from the Americans.
