As the finishing line approached KEALOHA and TAWERA just eased out SHAMOUN, with TAWERA eventually taking out line honours and the series. Charter yacht KEALOHA placed second and took a special recognition for being the first luxury vessel to visit the South Pacific nation specifically for the Cup. SHAMOUN received the respect of all who participated in the Millennium Cup for the way she had set the pace during this race and on previous days.
