Rorvik extends lead in Tauranga Cup after Day 4

Racing got underway in the Tauranga Cup at Whangarei in a 15-20 knot SW breeze, with many boats repaired from yesterday’s windy conditions and ready to race again today. The fleet headed out following the committee boats early set up and the action was ready to start on time at 11.00 am. The P Class were the first to start and after one general recall they headed off up the beat.

Andrew McKenzie (Kohimarama) lead the race at the first mark and was never headed. Gareth Moore (Waimakariri) and Oscar Rorvik (Tauranga) picked up from yesterdays battle and continued their feud from the day before. Oscar broke his vang on the second down wind but still managed to stay in touch for an enthralling finish. Andrew McKenzie subsequently retired from sailing for the day with a severe cut to his hand. After a short break for lunch, race 5 started in sunny 10-15 knots. Sam Mackay (Napier) had a clear start out of the port end, caught the first shift and lead the fleet for the whole race, clearing out to win by over a minute. Oscar and Gareth once again battled around the course, including a 15 tack tacking dual into the finish line, with Oscar taking 2nd Place. William Linkhorn (Kohimarama) finishing 4th, had a fantastic race.

In the final race, after three general recalls, the race started under a black flag. Erica Dawson (Murrays Bay) lead the fleet for most of the race, with a tight tactical battle going on between Oscar, Gareth and Sam all chasing hard. After a further rain squall, that shook up the fleet, Oscar won the race 50 seconds clear from Erica.

Results after 5 races, with one discard:

1st Oscar Rorvik (Tauranga) 2, 1,3, 2, 1 6pts

2nd Gareth Moore (Waimak/(Murrays Bay) 4,3,5,6,2 14 pts
