Day two of the Laser Masters World Championships off Terrigal in Australia and a great day for racing, sponsored by Mion today. The standard Laser classes completed their first two races and the Radial classes added two races too the one they managed on the opening day.

In the Radial it was Steve Cockerill in the Masters event who had the best of the day, scoring a second and a third to move to fourth overall and tied on points with Mark Orams of New Zealand. They are three points behind the new leader, Greg Adams of Australia. John Reay had a tenth and a ninth to be seventh overall.

In the Radial Grand masters event, Ian Rawet is in fourth and Peter Whipp is sixth, both keeping in single figures so far. Overall leader is Pete Haywood of Australia who won both of his races, staying ahead of compatriate, Brian Watson who was second in both races.

Robin Stenhouse racing in the Radial Great Grand masters is in sixth after three races, scoring a sixth and a twelth. Pete Seidenberg of the USA is setting the pace with just four points and a scoreline of 1, 2, 1.

Plenty of GBR action in the Standard Apprentice class, Orlando Gledhill is in fourth after day one for them, followed by Simon Barrington in fifth and Chris Gowers in sixth.Overall leader is Australian Brett Beyer with two first places, followed by Rohan Lord of New Zealand and Jyrki Taiminen of Finland tied on five points.

In the Standard Great Grand masters, Keith Wilkins is top GBR in sixth place after finishing second in the opening race and then 15th in the second. Overall leader is a certain Mark Bethwaite of Australia who is tied on points with Rob Lowndes also Australia.

Quotes

Standard Apprentice sailors had various takes on today's racing. Christopher Gowers (GBR) 'It was pretty good out there; shifty, wavy and a true course. There wasn't enough wind for fat blokes like me! At its peak, it blew around 13-14 knots from the east.'

Lionel Welch would rather forget his day. 'The racing was good - great, actually, but my performance was bad! I made silly errors; if you're error prone like me, you suffer. 'I made stupid errors today, like hitting marks, that sort of thing. Then I got a pumping penalty. I think the jury was a bit zealous on that one; I don't actually know how to pump! I guess it's quite flattering really,' laughed the Brit who lives in and is representing Hong Kong.

The stories were similar in the140-strong Standard Masters fleet which has been broken into two fleets. Malcolm Courts (GBR). 'I went badly. I couldn't get any speed out of the boat. I don't know what it is, but there's something badly wrong,' he said.

John Fullerton (GBR) said he had a much better day. 'It was a more settled breeze. It's nice to get into a race course. The sea was still unsettled though, but the day was a good one - I finished mid fleet, which is my expectation,' he said.

For Peter Whipp (GBR) in the Radial Grand masters, a capsize did not stop him from making a comeback. 'I had a reasonable day. I was lying third in the second race, capsized and I was last, but I made my way back to fourth, I think. Not bad, considering,' he said.
