2012 Mitre 10 MEGA NZ Paper Tiger Nationals - Day 2

'Jamie Hatch - 2011 New Zealand Paper Tiger Nationals'    Rachel Leatham

The 2012 Mitre 10 MEGA NZ Paper Tiger National Championships saw the second day of racing today with another 2 races completed under blue skies with about 10 knots of breeze and a nice (if sometimes confused) seaway to work on the downwind legs.

Kaefer Services Ltd Race Two saw Ryan (Rowdy) Leatham from New Plymouth take honours following full on battle around the entire track with Mark Bell (Ponsonby, Auckland). The lead changing places multiple times during the race.

Rimu Electrical Race Three saw Scott Pedersen from Napier take the victory in a race that again had multiple lead changes. Pedersen managed to obtain the lead on the final reach and never surrendered it in the final beat, even with a fierce challenge from Bob Preston from Nelson.

After the completion of two days of racing Scott Pedersen has the lead by one point from Ryan (Rowdy) Leatham and Dave Shaw (Nelson) is a further point behind. Mark Bell and Peter Robins (Muritai, Wellington) round out the top five.
Competition in the B Grade is still tight with Andy Brown (Evans Bay, Wellington) coming out on top following today's racing. Nathan Percy (Napier) is currently leading the C Grade, while Jane Thomassen (Evans Bay, Wellington) is currently the first Female.
