Day three at the OAMPS Insurance Brokers Australian Youth Championship 2008 got underway in winds ranging from 8-15 knots.

David Gilmour, son of World Match Racing Champion Peter Gilmour, along with crew member Andres Noe continued their lead in the 420 Boys class.

David commented on the conditions. 'In the first race of the day the winds were really light and going around the top mark we were in second place but managed to win it on equal points with Edward Campbell and James Omay also from Western Australia.

'By the second race of the day the wind picked up from the south and became quite shifty but we managed to win that race as well as the third race of the day.

'Today was perfect sailing conditions and I have been really enjoying the regatta.'

For the first time in the events 11 year history, youth sailors from the Northern Territory have entered the event. Currently standing in first place in the Laser 4.7 girls division is Northern Territory’s Ashlie Lane. She said, 'I have just come from the Laser Nationals and placed fifth overall which I am really happy with, especially considering most of my experience is on Minnows and not Lasers.

'The conditions today proved to be challenging and I think I could have performed better than a second in race one, fourth in race two and second in race three, but I am currently sitting in the lead so it’s all good.'

For the first time Yachting Australia has included the opportunity for competitor’s results to contribute to a ‘State Cup’. A new perpetual trophy will be awarded to the best performing Australian state. The leading state at present is New South Wales on 109 points followed by Victoria on 119 points and Western Australia in third place on 167 points.

Racing concludes on Thursday 10th January. This will be followed by the Presentation Ceremony at the Frankston Art Centre attending by 400 people where the OAMPS Insurance Brokers Australian Youth Team 2008 will be announced. The Team will then go on to compete at the Volvo Youth Sailing ISAF World Championship to be held in Aarhus, Denmark from 10th – 19th July, 2008.
