Detroit Cup : Aon Racing still in the hunt on Day 2 of the D-cup

by Aon Racing media

Aon Racing has made it to the Detroit Cup (affectionately known by locals as the D-cup).

Aon Racing has had a slightly better than average first two days, which is not bad going considering the light fickle winds and strong current that have featured at the venue. We are now on 5 wins from 8 races, with three races still to go in the round robin.

It will most likely take 6 wins to make the quarters, or 7 wins to make the semis if the wind forces the race committee to shorten the regatta format. This means the team will need to post some more wins tomorrow to ensure that their title hopes stay alive.

The racing will be broadcast live with fantastic commentary at Racing is scheduled to start at 10am tomorrow, local time in the eastern USA.

We would like to thank our principal sponsor, Aon Insurance Brokers, as well as Club Marine and Allianz for their support. Thanks also to our home club, the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron.

Aon Racing is Reuben Corbett (Skipper), Adrian Short (Main) and Tom Bentham (Bow).
