470 Olympic representative, Peter Burling is all concentration on Day 2 2008 of the Club Marine NZ Keelboat Nationals Richard Gladwell www.photosport.co.nz

18 year old Peter Burling (Tauranga) dished out a couple of sailing lessons to Emirates Team New Zealand skipper, Dean Barker on the third day of the Club Marine NZ Keelboat Championships sailed on the Waitemata harbour today.

The young 470 Olympic representative, and double world 420 champion, won both races sailed today in fresher easterly winds, with Barker finishing with two fourth on his scorecard. The America's Cup skipper holds onto the lead in the regatta by just one point from Burling, who made a charge through the points table.

Also in serious contention for the title is Andrew Wills, a former Etchells World Champion who turned in a 3,6 scorecard today to lie in third overall just one point behind Burling.

The race logs from www.rayc.org.nz are as follows:
