Three nationalities are represented in the top five overall after the second day of racing in the 2009 Audi Flying Fifteen World Championship sailed on Port Phillip Bay, Melbourne.

Britain lead the series after two races were sailed today, making three for the series to date. However in contrast to yesterday the racing was not just a contest bettween the top three crews, with the third race being the divider in the points score.

After two races were completed, mid-afternoon, today two competitors were tied on the top of the points table. Grant Alderson/Dean Mcaullay (AUS) and Steve Goacher/Phil Evans (GBR) each had four points from two races.

Racing was difficult in the light conditions allowing the British crew of Barry Parkin and Tim Hall (GBR) to take the overall lead in the series through consistent sailing. Their win in the second race of the series was backed up with a sixth, lifting them through to the points lead by four points.

In contrast to the sea breezes of yesterday, racing was initially postponed before getting underway in a light breeze of around five knots from 165 degrees - east of south and an indication that the sea breeze might not eventuate.

After several general recalls the fleet got underway for Race 2 with Parking, Alderson and Goacher in control, and with a safe margin over the rest of the fleet.

Race 3 was the upset of the series for the series leaders with Alderson/Mcaullay (AUS) picking up a 13th place and Goacher/Evans (GBR) one back in 14th place. Parkin and Hall (GBR) played it safer and emerged with a sixth, their second of the series to take the series lead.

two New Zealand crews feature in the top five overall with David Tucker/Matt Summers scoring second place in Race 3, and a good supporting oplace for their fifth in Race 2. Aaron Goodmanson/Alister Rowlands took sixth in Race 2 and 12th in race 3 to lie within ten points of the race leader.

It was not originally planned to sail two races today, however a forecast for stronger winds later in the week prompted officials to schedule an additional race to give themselves some leeway in the race schedule.
