The 2013 NZL Yachting Trust Youth Team have returned more solid results from Day 2 of the Sail First ISAF Youth Sailing World Championships on now in Limassol, Cyprus.

The New Zealand crews are now all within the top six of their respective fleets with Isaac McHardie (Hamilton Yacht Club) and Micah Wilkinson (Ngaroto Sailing Club) still leading the SL16 event and Sam Barnett and Zak Merton (Tauranga Yacht & Powerboat Club) improving to third overall in the boy’s 420.

Ian Neely reports; 'It’s been another long and tough day with the breeze up and down. The whole team is still in the hunt but it is early days yet. The team is in good spirits and ready for another day tomorrow.'

Isaac and Micah have now opened up a nine point leading margin in the SL16 multihull fleet after adding a fifth, a win and a second to their points tally today. There are 15 boats on the race track and the kiwi boys, with three wins and two seconds over the first two days, have positioned themselves as the most consistent crew.

'We were fast and consistent… it was another solid day for us,' say Isaac and Micah who both started sailing in the Waikato.



New Zealand improved in both the boy’s 420 and the boy’s Laser Radial. Sam Barnett and Zak Merton (Tauranga Yacht & Powerboat Club) sailed three races today and have climbed from sixth to third overall in the boy’s 420. Opening with two second places their third race was their worst so far, yet they discard the 23rd and move up the ranks.

For Andrew McKenzie (Kohimarama Yacht Club) in the Laser Radial he also improves, from ninth up to sixth, despite mixed results today in Cyprus. He placed 14th, 27th and third in his three races.

Our 29er skiff sailors Markus Somerville and Jack Simpson (Wakatere Boating Club) took their first race win today and are now lying fifth overall. They were sixth and seventh in today’s other two races and are now eying the crews just ahead close on points.

Meanwhile Olivia Mackay and Abby Goodwin (Napier Sailing Club) dip to sixth in the girl’s 420 standings. After an 11th and a fifth on the water on Day 2.

Racing resumes tomorrow for day three of the five day regatta.
