Darren Bundock and Glenn Ashby (AUS) today won both races to take out the Tornado Asia Pacific Regatta at Somers Yacht Club on the Mornington Peninsula.

Multiple Tornado world champion Bundock, who won Silver at the Sydney 2000 Games, and Ashby, a Victorian who won the 2006 Tornado Worlds with Bundock and recently claimed the A Cat World crown, beat their nearest rivals Andrey Kirilyuk and Valeriy Ushkov from Russia by five points.

Leigh McMillan and Will Howden from Great Britain rounded out fifth place. The pair is selected for Beijing. Other GBR positions - 9 Andrew Walsh and Edward Barney, 14 John Gimson and Stuart Bithell, 17 Tom Phipps and Marcus Lynch.

While Bundock and Ashby have already been selected to the Beijing Olympic Games, the Russian are still battling it out with team mates who also contested the Sail Melbourne Regatta.

Kirilyuk has already represented at three Games and he and Ushkov are thrilled with their second place, scoring a pair of fourth places to overcome the world champions Fernando Echavarri and Antoz Paz from Spain who took the bronze medal on countback from Olympic medallist, Mitch Booth and his crew Pim Nieuwenhuis (NED), on the final day.

'We are trying very hard to go to Beijing and today this result helps us,' said Kirilyuk.

Altogether, international fleet of 32 boats took part in the Regatta. All will have a few days off now before contesting Sail Melbourne’s International Regatta at Sandringham Yacht Club starting on January 14.
