Knickerbocker Cup: Not the Best Start for Black Sheep Racing

by Reuben Corbett

We didn’t get off to the best start at defending our Knickerbocker Cup title, finishing the day on 3 wins and 5 losses. True to form we have made it hard for ourselves going into day two. This now means we have to win our remaining three matches to have a chance at the top six. We had plenty of close races, with penalties going either way, but more often than not, couldn’t quite finish the job.

We have the first six races off tomorrow so will have time to relax and have an easy morning, before finishing our remaining round robin matches tomorrow afternoon. The pressure will be on but we know we perform best under pressure so look to see us come out firing. This is a similar position to where we were last year after day one so we know we can come back from this.

Black Sheep would like to thank the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron, friends and family for their support. Thank you!
