The Warren Jones International Youth Regatta 2012, managed by Swan River Sailing, second day of racing got underway at the Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club today.

Local skipper David Gilmour and his crew have taken sole possession of the top spot on the leaderboard winning all but one of their races.

'It’s been pretty good,' commented Gilmour at the end of the day, 'in some of the races we sailed as well as we wanted to, and everything has gone to plan, we won all our races but one so we’re pretty happy about it.'

Leader at the end of the first day, Jordan Reece from Sydney, has slipped to second place on the leaderboard, with New Zealand skipper Josh Junior climbing from seventh after the first day, to third.

With conditions on Perth’s Swan River being influenced by cyclone Iggy, it was a tough day for both the sailors and the race organisers, with shifty, fickle winds and heavy humidity.

Gilmour’s team of Ted Hackney, Jasper Warren, Adam Negri and Luke Payne have put in a big effort this year, having finished second in 2011, 'last year we were second and pretty disappointed with that, so we’ve worked quite hard at it, I think our fitness is pretty good.'

The only race that Gilmour lost was one of the most dramatic of the day, with his team losing the spinnaker halyard up the mast, then getting a penalty, before managing to absolve themselves, then re-taking the lead, only to lose it again within yards of the finish.
