Knickerbocker Cup: Waka Racing Win

by SailRaceWin

One more race in the semi-finals of the Knickerbocker Cup saw Waka Racing (Phil Robertson) draw level with Full Metal Jacket Racing (Will Tiller) at 1-1. However, the wind then bowed out...

A count-back to the round robin results gave overall victory to Waka Racing. (The Americans must be wondering how they can win on home waters, as two different Kiwi teams have now won this event two years running!)

Further count-back suggests that Eugeny Neugodnikov (Synergy, RUS) is second, Bill Hardesty (USA) third, and Will Tiller (Full Metal Jacket Racing, NZL) fourth.

The winner, Phil Robertson, has gained entry to the World Match Racing Tour's Argo Group Gold Cup in Bermuda in October 2010.

Summing the three events in the East Coast Trifecta suggests that Bill Hardesty has the highest point score (145 points) and has thereby gained entry to the Congressional Cup 2011, at Long Beach, California, USA.
