Omega Auckland Match Racing: Update #3 on Day 3

Forecast: Southerly 10 knots going to southwest 15 knots later

Adam Minoprio after RR2 Flight 4 (in which he beat Barker on the last leg): "It was exciting for us. We felt we had a good start. Dean got the right... We thought we could cross him at the top, but didn't make it and got a red flag penalty so we had to take our penalty immediately.

"It's very light and shifty so there's lots of passing lanes."

Barker had an over-ride on a winch on the second upwind leg, which helped Minoprio to catch up.
