Day five of the Laser Radial Men’s and Youth World Championships in New Zealand and there were similar weather conditions again today for the men and youth contests. The north-easterly direction of breeze has held strong for the week bringing today 15-20knots of wind. With the tide turning around one pm, the second race got underway in a one and a half metre swell.

No change to the top two in the Youth Men’s fleet with Andy Maloney of New Zealand holding firm in the top spot on fourteen points and Martin Evans of Britain still in second on twenty-one points. Australian Tom Burton has taken up third today, obviously enjoying the windier conditions, posting a first and third.

The two at the top of the Youth Female fleet have switched places again, Cushla Hume-Merry of New Zealand scoring two wins today to overtake Gabrielle King of Australia who sits in second place. Sarah Gunni of Denmark has held on to third with two seconds, closing the points gap on the leaders as the second discard has been brought in.

With the top two in the Men’s fleet well out in front the race is on for third place, swapping around again today now that the second discard has been brought in. Canadian Michael Leigh and Brad Funk of the USA both scored well today to sit thirteen points ahead of third place. Simon Morgan of Australia jumped up into third place sitting on thirty-two points, closely followed by James Sandall, New Zealand, on thirty-five points and James Burman of Australia on thirty-eight points.
