Sailors were treated to a 10-12 knot northerly and cloudless skies for Day 3 of the 2013 CentrePort International Youth Match Racing Championship. Racing got away on time with the race committee rolling through the final matches of the second round robin and progressing on to the sail offs.
The form book stayed true with Sam Gilmour’s team from the Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club continuing on and completing the double round robin with out dropping a match. Ash Rooklyn’s team from the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia have proved almost as consistent winning all of their matches except those against the Gilmour.
The two local teams four Royal Port Nicholson Yacht Club, skippered by Sam Mackay and Basil Connor, finished the double round robin in third and fourth with nine ans seven wins respectively.
After the two round robins the standing were:
1st Sam Gilmour - Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club: 14 wins 2nd Ash Rooklyn - Cruising Yacht Club of Australia: 12 wins 3rd Sam Mackay - Royal Port Nicholson Yacht Club: 9 wins 4th Basil Connor - Royal Port Nicholson Yacht Club: 7 wins 5th Scotty Barnes - Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron: 5 wins 6th Milly Bennett - Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club: 4 wins 7th Hampus Applegren - Royal Swedish Yacht Club: 4 wins 8th Beren Beowulf - Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron: 1 wins
In the sail off for fifth and sixth places Barnes prevailed over Bennet 2-1 while Appelgren took seventh spot with a 2-0 victory over Beowulf.
