NZL Sailing Team: Day 4 - Wild and wet in Palma with two days to go

It was an eventful day in Palma for Day 4 of the ISAF Sailing World Cup Regatta with plenty of wind, waves and capsizes - and one enormous air carrier forcing the Race Committee to change course areas.

Despite not staying upright Peter Burling and Blair Tuke still have the overall lead in the 49er. None of the 470 divisions raced in today’s high winds meaning Jo Aleh and Polly Powrie are still lying third.

49er and 49erFX: Keeping their cool in the conditions Burling and Tuke (pictured above) sailed well enough to extend their leading margin in the 49er class and now sit 18 points clear ahead of the pack.

Blair Tuke reports in after racing; 'We raced two races today in some really big breeze and waves, lots of carnage with capsizes everywhere.'

'In the first race we were leading all the way around and then capsized on the last downwind to finish, ending up fifth.'

'Second race we were 10th at the last top mark after an earlier capsize had dropped us back, on a crazy downwind to the finish we were the last team standing, taking the win. Looking forward to the final two days racing.'

In the women’s skiff Alexandra Maloney and Molly Meech sailed home with a 15th and a 13th from their two races today. They’re now in 15th overall, up two paces from yesterday, with limited races remaining to make it into the top ten for the medal stage racing on Saturday.

470 Women and Men: There was no racing today for the Women’s or Men’s 470 fleets and both NZL Sailing Team pairs hold their respective positions – Aleh and Powrie in third, Snow-Hansen and Willcox in fifth – eager to get back out on the race track tomorrow.

Finn: Spectacular and challenging racing for the Finn fleet has seen kiwi Josh Junior take a tumble down the standings after today. He placed 35th and 32nd and now lies 16th no doubt keen to produce some top results tomorrow for a shot at the medal race on Saturday in which only the top ten placed sailors compete.

Andrew Murdoch made a gain on the leader-board into 24th place after today’s racing.

Laser: Andy Maloney, who opened the day with a race win, is now the best placed of the three NZL Sailing Team campaigners in the Laser fleet in 10th place, with Sam Meech in 12th and Thomas Saunders in 13th.

Nacra 17: The kiwi Nacra team of Gemma Jones from the Murrays Bay Sailing Club, and Jason Saunders from the Tauranga Yacht & Powerboat Club are lying 12th overall in the multihull event at the end of day four. They were 15th in the one race sailed today.

Women’s RS:X: Natalia Konsinska remains on track for a medal race start and now lies ninth overall in the Women’s RS:X class after placing eighth in today’s only race on the results board.

Racing continues tomorrow and runs over the next three days with titles and medals set to be decided in Palma on April 5th. The next ISAF Sailing World Cup Regatta kicks off in Hyeres, France on April 16th.
