Sail-World.com : NZL Sailing Team: Kiwi Womens 470 score first race win in Perth

NZL Sailing Team: Kiwi Womens 470 score first race win in Perth

'ISAF Sailing World Cup Day 12 NZL Jo Aleh and Olivia Powrie'    Alex Ocean Images

It was a frustrating day for many sailors in Perth today, with patches of big breeze and patches of glass throughout the race courses of the 2011 ISAF Sailing World Championships. The Mens’ RS:X and 49er were unable to complete all of the scheduled races today, but the Laser and women’s 470 classes are still on track.

In yesterday's racing, NZL Sailing Team's Peter Burling and Blair Tuke had only two of their three scheduled races in the 49er class after a long wait on shore in postponement, hoping the conditions would become stable enough for racing. Unfortunately, the Fremantle Doctor did not arrive today but racing proceeded despite the missed appointment.

'The first race was really shifty and we got quite far left, it wasn’t looking that great. We got a big left shift and gained heaps on the first downwind.' Peter explained how positions changed frequently during racing. 'We were leading at the bottom mark'. They finished that race in third, and the next race in twelfth.

'In the second race we just finished on the back of about five boats, that race could have been an eighth very easily' Blair had the same reaction to the conditions. 'It was a full snakes and ladders day'.

The Men’s RS:X fleet were only able to complete one race today. The first race was abandoned when the first men were within a few hundred meters of the finish, some sailors racing in a sea breeze and others in the offshore. When this race was eventually re-raced JP Tobin came out top kiwi with a sixth place finish, and Tom Ashley in twelfth.

At the half way milestone of their World Championships, Tom is now in fifth place overall and JP is not far behind on the points table in twelfth.



After a couple bad races yesterday, the Jo Aleh and Olivia Powrie have picked up the slack on the 470 race course, and had two fantastic races today. They won the last race of the day, and are the first of the NZL Sailing Team to win a race in this second wave of the World Championships.

Over on the Men’s Laser course, Andrew Murdoch had another two consistent races; all of his individual races so far have been within the top ten. Once racing finally got going for the men in this single handed class today, Andrew was out of the gates at full speed, finishing the first race in second place. Andrew now sits tenth overall.

Wednesday’s results were the final contributing races in the split tonight for who will be in the Gold/Silver/Bronze fleets in the next round of this regatta based on their overall standings. All of the NZL Sailing Team members will be progressing to the gold fleets.

Thursday is a rest day for the Women’s 470 as they on track with the schedule; however the 49ers will have one race to make up the one lost race today. The Men’s Laser is scheduled for two more races tomorrow, and three races for the Men’s RS:X
