Velsheda won the third day's racing in the Falmouth 2012 J Class Regatta.
She finished just over a minute ahead of Ranger in second place.
The wind picked up in the morning, leaving clearer skies than the foggy condition the boats had to endure out in the bay on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Rainbow took an early lead, but Velsheda took control of the race at the windward mark, just off Porthallow.
Ranger pushed the leader right until the end, but Velsheda held on for victory.
Full race results as follows - Position, Yacht, Race Time:
1, Velsheda, 2:49:53
2, Ranger, 2:51:0
3, Lionheart, 2:51:15
4, Rainbow 2:52:51
