Paul Snow Hansen and Jason Saunders won two races on Day 2 of the ISAF Sailing World Cup regatta Skandia Sail for Gold. Sailing in the Mens Two handed event (470) they jumped up the overall leader board from 12th to second place.

After yesterday’s light winds, racing is now back on schedule at the Weymouth Olympic sailing.

New Zealand’s 2012 Olympic representatives in the Mens Two Hander (470), Snow-Hansen and Saunders, made a good recovery to win the first race, taking the lead on the second downwind leg overtaking the World Champion Australians and fourth placed Croatians. Their second race was sailed more conservatively in the fog, being careful not to lose sight of the marks.

In the Womens Two hander (470) Jo Aleh and Polly Powrie also had a better day with a third and eighth place finish in their two races they are up to fourth overall as they near the half way mark of the event.

'They are showing some moments of glory but still have some things to work on.' said Jo and Polly’s coach Nathan Handley. 'They are just aiming to get their whole package together come the Olympics'.

One of the elements of the team’s Olympic preparation is gaining an understanding of the local weather systems. On this second day of racing, conditions were much more favourable for sailing with higher wind speeds although most courses experienced fog and plenty of rain.

'It was miserable to be honest' continued Nathan. 'Cold and wet, but pretty good sailing conditions with relatively stable 12-18 kn winds'

New NZL Sailing Team members Marcus Hansen and Josh Porebski continue to stay on fine form in the Mens Skiff (49er)fleet, still completing every race inside the top 10, today carding a seventh ninth and 10th place finishes. World Championship silver medalists Peter Burling and Blair Tuke are on similar pace, only finishing one of yesterday’s races outside the top ten. Today the NZ Olympic 49er representative crew finished 10, seventh and eighth in their three races.

As six races have been completed the 49er fleets have been able to drop their worst scores, leaving Marcus and Josh in 11th, and Peter and Blair in 19th. The fleet as always is very close in overall points, only 10 points separate 10th from 20th.

It was a long day on the water for the three NZ sailors in the Mens Singlehander (Laser) event, only coming back to shore at 7:30pm after they and the Finn, Star and Skud had three races each. 2012 Olympic representative Andrew Murdoch claimed his spot inside the top ten, opening the day with a second place finish then a 10th and fifth to leave him eighth overall after four races.

In the Womens Singlehander (Laser Radial) Sara Winther picked up a Black Flag penalty in her first race today for being over the start line too early. She will be able to drop this as her worst score after five races have been completed tomorrow. She has dropped from 47th to 54th in the fleet.

Hamish Pepper and Jim Turner remain in the top ten overall in the Mens Keelboat (Star). They finished 7, 12,11 today dropping two places down the leaderboard to 10th overall.

Both the Mens and Womens Windsurfers (RS:X) events have New Zealanders in 11th place overall. 2012 Olympic representative JP Tobin looking to improve, having performed very well in this venue in past regattas. For Natalia Kosinska and Steff Williams this is their last chance to earn 2012 NZ Olympic nomination, with NZ qualifying in this event in December 2011.

Newcomer to the >b>Mens Heavyweight Singlehander (Finn), Josh Junior continues to impress, dropping two places to be in 12th after four races. Matt Coutts is in 28th place with his uncle Rob Coutts in 38th place overall.

Stephanie Hazard, Jenna Hansen and Susannah Pyatt, sailing in the Womens Match Racing will complete their round robin tomorrow. They won two races, losing three and now stand with a two win, seven loss record.

Three New Zealand crews are competing in Paralympic events. In the singlehander 2.4mtr class, Paul Francis is placed eighth overall, with four races sailed, with Brett Willcox in 11th place.

The NZ doublehanded Skud 18 team Tim Dempsey and Jan Apel have moved up to seventh place overall after three top ten finishes.

The forecast for tomorrow includes more wind, potentially in the 20+ kt wind range, and more rain too. Two races are scheduled for all fleets, with the exception of the 49ers who will try for three again.
