Racing resumed last night after a rest day for most at the 41st Youth Sailing ISAF World Championship 2011 in Zadar, Croatia.

With two days to run the regatta heads into the business end of competition for the twelve strong NZL Sailing Team representing New Zealand.

Team Manager, Ian Neely says, 'Today we had three to seven knots of southerly and flat water - a bit more shifty that the sea breeze, but still very hot. The forecast for tomorrow says no wind.'

New Zealand is in the top ten in three of the eight classes racing in Croatia including top five standings in the SL16 open multihull and the 29er skiff at this stage in the series.

Tomer Simhony and Ellie Copeland continue to battle it out in the multihull where they are now placed third overall after a total of nine races, placing third and seventh in two races sailed overnight.

Denmark’s multi sailors have overtaken them in the standings climbing to second with a slightly better performance on the water on day four. Just two points separate second and third on the leader-board.

Lowy and Andrade from Brazil have gold well and truly in their sights adding yet another two wins to their card and extending their lead to 26 points.

A third and a 15th from kiwis Jack Simpson and Logan Dunning-Beck sailing in the 29er drops them to fifth place overall with some work to do on the penultimate day to get back into medal contention.

Georgia Schofield is in seventh place in the girl’s RS:X after a fifth and an eighth in racing on day five of the competition for her.

New Zealand’s Michael Cate, sailing in the boy’s Laser Radial had his best day of the regatta so far with a second and an eighth on the water improving his overall standing to 14th place.

Racing resumes for the NZL Yachting Trust Youth Team tonight in what will be the penultimate day of the regatta, with just one race scheduled per fleet for the final day.
