The NZL Yachting Trust Youth Team excelled in the more settled wind and water conditions which were handed to them on this penultimate day of the event.

'We had two good starts today which laid the platform for our solid results' said Alex Munro who is sailing 29er with Trent Rippey (pictured above). They placed fifth and ninth in their two races.

'We had the best breeze and conditions today of the whole regatta and it was awesome' Alex continued.

In the men’s 420, Jayvee Buchanan and Matthew Morrison are saving some of their best results for last, yesterday finishing a race in seventh, and today a ninth in this extremely competitive class. Also in 420, Ellie Copeland and Erica Dawson are continuing their consistent results, performing very similar to how they did yesterday with a fifth place finish followed up by a tenth.

Today’s top result producers were Gemma Jones and Tomer Simhony in the SL 16, staying on pace with the lead pack and adding a fifth and fourth to their track record.

Andrew McKenzie carded another great first race today (fifth) but then was again one of more than ten competitors which received a black flag penalty in the second race for being over the start line too early.

Day 5 Standings

5th- Ellie Copeland and Erica Dawson- Female 420 (1, 21, 10, 5, 11, 3, 5, 5, 11, 5, 10)
