Australia III, the yacht that may defend the America's Cup in 1987, sailed to an easy victory in the third heat of the world 12-meter competition at Fremantle, Australia.

Second was the fiberglass yacht New Zealand Kz3, which was put to sea with a patched mast. The Canadian yacht True North finished third.

On adjusted point scoring allowing for the discarding of the worst result in the seven-race series, Australia III leads, followed by New Zealand Kz5, Kz3's twin; America II and French Kiss.
