CentrePort Wellington International Youth Match Racing Championship - Day Two

by Matt Chan

Racing resumed this morning outside the club and Round Robin 1 was was completed just before lunch today.

Royal Sydney Yacht Squardron skipper Jordan Reece topped Round Robin 1 followed by fellow Australian Will Mackenzie, Matt Steven finished in 3rd and rounding out the top four was Tim Coltman.

Day 2 of the CentrePort International Youth Match Racing Regatta was just one of those days. Earlier in the day a side stay jumped out of the spreader and in the afternoon a traveller cleat was replaced. In the flight 7 re-match Mackenzie beat Reece by a 3 minute 33 second margin who had a temporary mainsheet failure.

RPNYC skipper Matt Steven got off to a great start in Round Robin 2 with 3 consecutive wins, matched only by Cruising Yacht Club of Australia skipper Will Mckenzie. Round Robin 1 winner Jordan Reece was unable to sustain the momentum and has dropped his first three matches in round robin 2.

At 4.30pm Thursday afternoon the halfway mark of Round Robin 2 was reached but the winds had risen too high to continue. All sailors retired to the Wardroom to enjoy the social side of the regatta and Round 2 will resume Friday.
