Omega Auckland Match Racing: Update #4 on Day 4

Chris Dickson is sailing with Emirates Team New Zealand crew here.

Magnus Holmberg is higher and faster off the line on port against Pacé, which is what Dickson did to Barker. It is something of a one-track course at present. Ainslie won the left off the start and, like with the other matches, got into the first left-hand shift, then heads across the river current and over to the wall by the Squadron where there is less current, and so up to the windward mark.

It's still light and tricky!

RR2 Flight 7 (First race was held on Friday; remainder on Saturday)
Minoprio beat Col by 1s
Mirsky beat Jablonski by 40s
Dickson beat Barker
Holmberg beat Pacé
Ainslie beat Bruni
