Australians good first day in Miami

Tom Burton  Australian Sailing Team
The ISAF Sailing World Cup Miami 2014 first day was a strong day for Australia, with Tom Burton, the Laser Wold ranked number one taking two bullets, it was expected that Robert Scheidt would dominate but Burton, after an ordinary world championships, a great Melbourne regatta is back in the groove.

Australia's Oliver Tweddell leads the biggest Finn class fleet in recent times, with a third and a win in the first race. With the unusual scoring system of allowing the drop from race one, the leader board masks some serious differences.

Tweddell sits at the top of the 39 boat Finn fleet. Alexey Selivanov (RUS) won the opening race to end up in joint first place, while a second place for Giles Scott (GBR) race two was enough to leave him in third, despite an OCS in race one. Scott will be hampered across the rest of the regatta, another bad result will be damaging for Scott while Tweddell has dropped a real keeper, a third.

The world ranked number one of the 470 sailors, Mat Belcher and Will Ryan (AUS), who are looking to extend their unbeaten streak as a team to 11 this week. Belcher has won his last 18 consecutive 470 regattas. They were third and ninth on the opening day and are currently fourth out of 30 teams.

The match racing dynasty that is Gilmour continues at Warren Jones regatta, with Sam and David Gilmour amongst the scrapping field.

In flight two, Gilmour brothers Sam and David fought out a classic duel which Sam was winning, but David showed his guile and experience at the end of the first downwind leg to finesse his way to a narrow lead, from which Sam was never given a chance to recover.

Gill Melges 24 World Championship 2014 Day one, Geelong. A serious northerly (28-35) knot breeze and an outdoor temperature of 40 degrees have meant a subdued start to the worlds. Flight three saw a nasty collision between Sam Gilmour and Matt Jerwood. Umpires immediately penalised Gilmour, and since the Jerwood boat was holed too seriously to continue, Jerwood was awarded the match. At a hearing after racing had finished, the jury imposed a further penalty on Gilmour, leaving his score for the match at -1.

Shades of Tony Bullimore capsize in the Southern Ocean, 800 nautical miles off the Brazilian coast abeam of Rio de Janeiro, French multihull sailor, Lionel Lemonchois, triggered his EPIRB yesterday after capsizing the Maxi 80 trimaran Prince de Bretagne while attempting to break the Mauriceienne record from Port-Louis in France to Port-Louis in Mauritius. He advised them that his multihull capsized and he was safe inside the central hull after releasing the rig to relieve the boat.

Lemonchois, has a slightly injured hand, but plans to stay aboard his Maxi80 Prince de Bretagne to organize its recovery and right now is preparing for a long wait since the tug chartered by the team will not be in the zone for at least five days.
