The setter admitted that there was an error in the clue for 6d and this has now been amended on the online site to: "Finish last of all in contest, not exactly what is looked for (10)" See Giovanni's apology here: "http://bigdave44.com/2013/01/30/toughie-919/#comment-162964"

You're very welcome withthe help bigjack and wharton has it with sail and I also think tilly's answer is better than mine,hope that does not complicate anything.Good luck.

Thanks, all.
Happy I can justify country dancing, shatter, sail and canvas , but completion still has me foxed. I thought competition (for contest) would come into the mix, but can't see it.

Hyperlinks obviously don't work when enclosed in quotes!
