Etchells Worlds 2012 - Day 5 and its Money time

Day 5 - two more races today on the Manly Circle off Sydney Heads and the battle royal will continue. Marblehead USA sailor Jud Smith, the 2006 Etchells World Champion and Sydney sailor Tom King, the 2000 470 Olympic Gold Medalist are locked together at the top of the leaderboard.

Yesterday King after a very consistent run sailed his drop and Smith squeaked into the lead. 2010 World Champion John Bertrand is now in third place and it will only need a few bad starts one each for leaders to put him atop the table and then its cllose behind those three.



                                             R1 R2 R3 R4 R5 R6 Total Drop Net
Jud Smith 3 19 1 3 5 1 32 19 13
Tom King 2 6 3 2 2 14 29 14 15
John Bertrand 5 21 4 6 3 8 47 21 26
Graeme Taylor 4 1 12 10 7 10 44 12 32
Vince Brun 7 2 6 46 4 15 80 46 34
Cam Miles 12 8 2 7 33 7 69 33 36
Alistair Gair 6 30 5 12 12 11 76 30 46
David Clark 27 20 15 8 1 3 74 27 47
Peter McNeil 11 9 10 14 6 13 63 14 49
Noel Drennan 30 10 9 1 10 21 81 30 51

 



Its seems it going to be a soft weather day, which should in theory favour King. However there was dew on the grass, which indicates there is enough temperature difference for a north easter, so we shall see if computer models or eye balls mark I win today.
