Mirsky Racing Team report on the Omega Auckland Match Racing Day 3

by Kinley Fowler

After three days of racing, MRT are still in the hunt for a semi final spot with 8 wins and three races to go.

The organisers were kept on their toes as Auckland produced fluky conditions which persisted throughout the day.

The day kicked off with a solid race against Team Azzura’s Francesco Bruni. MRT managed to slide ahead of the Italian team off the starting line, and with Tom Slingsby creating a near flawless race strategy, they managed to extend their lead comfortably.

MRT are tied on 8 wins along with Emirates Team New Zealand’s Dean Barker and Team Aleph’s Bertrand Pacé of France, so tomorrow, every race counts.

The first race of the day will be against Team Synergy Russia’s Karol Jablonski who is one point ahead of MRT.
