NZL Sailing Team crews made massive gains on day two of the ISAF Sailing World Cup Palma in now Mallorca, Spain. Conditions were light again today and racing continued into the evening.

Plenty of single-figure race results for the kiwi team, including some race wins, has resulted in improved standings with five crews edging into the top ten of their fleet. Jo Aleh and Polly Powrie are now in third; Peter Burling and Blair Tuke are in fourth.

470: World and Olympic Champions Jo Aleh and Polly Powrie (pictured above in action today) have made up significant ground on their rivals on day two of the six day regatta leaping into the top three. In today’s two races for the Women’s 470 class Team Jolly were fourth and fifth and now discard their 17th from day one to climb the standings and sit two points adrift of the Brazilians in second place.

Over in the Men’s division Paul Snow-Hansen and Daniel Willcox have improved to 13th overall aided by a second place in the second race of the day, their best finish in the regatta so far.

49er and 49erFX: Peter Burling and BlairTuke, also reigning world champs in their class, went 2, 2, 2 in their three races today and are up into fourth place on the leader board as a result. Points are tight at the top with just three separating the kiwis from the leaders as the qualification round concludes.

Alexandra Maloney and Molly Meech are now in 20th in the Women’s skiff event, placing 23rd and eighth in their two races today, and Marcus Hansen and Josh Porebski are in 43rd in the Men’s.

Laser: All three NZL Sailing Team Laser campaigners had an excellent day on the water in Palma with two New Zealand sailors edging into the top ten of the 144-strong fleet.

Thomas Saunders (Tauranga Yacht & Powerboat Club) is now in sixth after two top three finishes today – a third and a second. Sam Meech, also from Tauranga, is two places back in eighth overall returning a 10th and a win on day two. Meanwhile Andy Maloney sailed home with a gun and a second which sees the Murrays Bay Sailing Club representative lift his overall position an astonishing 34 places to sit 17th.

Finn: After a solid day with three single digit results (8, 4, 5) Josh Junior, from the Worser Bay Boating Club, has improved his overall standing from lying 19th at the start of the day up to seventh overall in the 56-strong Finn fleet. Team-mate Andrew Murdoch, from the Kerikeri Cruising Club, has also climbed the ranks after day two and now lies 13th on the leader board.

Nacra 17: Gemma Jones and Jason Saunders took a race win today in the mixed multihull class and have improved their position to 27th.

Women’s RS:X: On the water until late into the evening the female windsurfers sailed two races today, Natalia Kosinska dropping from eighth to 12th in the ranks.

Racing continues tomorrow and runs over the next five days with titles and medals set to be decided in Palma on April 5th.
