Extreme Sailing Series : Qingdao day 3 race replay & interview with GAC Pindar skipper Will Tiller

Race Day 3 replay
On the penultimate day in Qingdao, Leigh McMillan definitely had his mojo back, winning two of the four races to overhaul Alinghi’s 14 race reign at the top of the leaderboard after a thick fog temporarily stalled proceedings yesterday morning. The battle on the rest of the leaderboard was even more tense and after another testing light wind day, only 11 points separate positions three to eight at close of play as the battle lines are drawn for today’s final showdown. Watch day 3 race replay here.

Will Tiller (NZL) on course to podium
GAC Pindar’s skipper Will Tiller only made the switch from match racing to the Extreme 40 stadium this year, and it seems to have been a smooth transition for the young Kiwi who is currently taking on the more experienced skippers in Qingdao and giving them a run for their money, sitting in third place as we head into the final days racing.
