The NZL Sailing Team with ETNZ remain at the top of the leader board after another gripping day of close encounter racing at the Red Bull Youth America’s Cup on now in San Francisco.

On 28 points they share the top spot with the Michael Menninger led American Youth Force Sailing Team. Behind them teams placed back as far as seventh in the standings are just three points off the leaders.

New Zealand’s FMJ Racing has a share of fourth place on 26 points after placing fourth and sixth in today’s races. With no one team dominating over the first half of the four day regatta it remains extremely tight for the remaining two days.

The NZL Sailing Team with ETNZ, sponsored by Rodd & Gunn, didn’t open the day according to the text book stalling on the start line in the first race. Crew member Guy Endean explains;

'It was tough today, the first race didn’t start that well, but it was just a matter of sticking in there really and try to pull back the places we could get. We worked hard for it, so it was just good to finish with a few boats behind us.'

Recording a seventh and earning four points for that first race, the NZL Sailing Team with ETNZ came away in race two with a much better start and went on to place third worth eight points.

Endean talks about what he feels the team did well today; 'The second race was good, a few things went our way and a couple didn’t but it was pretty good. There were a few, let’s call them freestyle manoeuvres, where they’re not entirely planned but just fell into shape with a bit of pressure. There were a couple of situations where it all came together nicely.'

The four day regatta is now at the midway point with two days and four races left on the schedule.

'We’ve just to get out there fresh again and do our thing really,' says Endean. 'Everything seems to be going well as far as the crew mechanics, there may be a couple of small things to iron out but apart from that it’s just a matter of getting out there fresh again and getting a good start and getting amongst it.'

Racing resumes tomorrow for day three and another two fleet races for all ten teams competing in the Red Bull Youth America’s Cup.

Using a high point scoring system, the first seven races have equal points weighting with 10 points for first, 9 points for second and so on. The final eighth race is worth double points.
