Max's Ticket of Leave led the way for BPS Recovery, crossing the line first ahead of Eagle Rock, owned by O'Brien Palmer's Bryan Collis and Tonic, carrying BPS partner, Dave Sampson.
The shortened course gave race participants time to rehydrate on board before the official rehydration at the Cruising Yacht Club's bar, an event interrupted briefly by the presentation ceremony.
This was the third time Max has won the trophy, which SiN was assured is much coveted by liquidators.
For SiN the event was about tapping into what's occupying the minds of accounting's insolvency operators.
Apparently further regulatory examination, focussing on individual practitioners, is anticipated and as the rum flowed, those likely to be subjects of the inquisitors' inquiries were speculated upon.
