by Sara Roberts on 12 Feb 2011
RNZYS Codie Banks - 2011 RNZYS HARKEN Youth International Match Racing Championships Sara Roberts

Australian Jay Griffin and Kiwis David Hazard and Codie Banks are locked together on top of the leader board at the end of Day 1 at the 2011 Harken Youth International Match Racing Championships.

All three won a total of six races with two losses at the conclusion of racing today, when Round Robin one and one flight of Round Robin Two was completed.

The teams hit the dock this afternoon weary from a hard day’s racing on the Auckland Harbour in a fresh 15 knot easterly which made for fantastic spectator viewing from the Westhaven seawall. Many friends, family and sailing enthusiasts came down to watch the close match racing action.

The RNZYS Blue team helmed by David Hazard and his crew of Rawiri Geddes, Callum Jones & Sam Molesworth had a bunch of impressive wins beating their opponents by over one minute, his closest race being with Wellington’s Josh Porebski whom he beat by just 7 seconds. Hazard was pleased with his team’s performance on the water today, commenting ‘Yeah it was cool’.


The RNZYS Red team helmed by Codie Banks and Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron’s Jay Griffin also have a total of 6 wins and 2 losses. On count back Banks broke the tie having beaten Griffin by 35 seconds in Flight Two this morning.

Wellington’s Josh Porebski and Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron’s Jordan Reece are next overall with a total of five wins and three losses each.

Italian Valerio Galati being the highest ranked skipper in the series began the day with 2 wins out of 2 races. The Italians fought hard in the remainder of their races but couldn’t add anymore to their total. This puts Galati in fifth place overall alongside Wellington’s Adam Middleton with 2 wins and 6 losses each.
The Championship’s only female skipper, Stephanie Doyle representing the Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club was unable to post any wins this morning but had some very close races and will be one to watch out for tomorrow.


Racing begins tomorrow (Sunday 13 February 2011) at 1000hrs. There is fantastic spectator viewing along the Westhaven Marina seawall. Daily results and photos will be published on www.rnzys.org.nz.
