Ladha/Inkpen from Royal Newfoundland Yacht Club cleaned up their act, posting 10, 12, 10 and two! Results like that have moved the guys up to ninth overall while team mates Mori/Barnes fell behind posting 27, 20, 24 and 27 to leave them in 30th position at the bottom gf the silver fleet.

Royal Canadian's Fergusson twins had an exciting day getting their first ever International Bullet in the bronze fleet. Congrats guys, you deserve it!

Asked about day four Jon Ladha says, 'It was much better, our Coach Mark Asquith, said it seemed like we started racing like when we finished our last campaign - good starts and smart sailing.'
