The Warren Jones International Youth Regatta 2012, managed by Swan River Sailing, first day of racing got underway at the Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club today.

Sydney sailors head the leaderboard at the end of the day one with Jordan Reece and David Chapman both undefeated after a tough day on the water.

Jordan Reece, who came into the event as the top ranked skipper, has six wins on the scoreboard, while David Chapman scored five.

'It was a good first day for us,' said Reece, 'we are not used to sailing these bigger boats, so it’s good to do well, we like them, they are a bit more challenging than the smaller boats we usually sail.'

Holding third place at this stage is local skipper David Gilmour chalking up four wins against one loss, his only defeat came at the hands of his younger brother Sam in his first encounter of the day.

For the first half of the day the crews battled a blustery easterly breeze, that required the mainsails to be reefed, but the wind faded through the afternoon turning the battle of brawn into a battle of brains and stealth.

Both Reece and Chapman are products of the Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron’s youth training scheme, which is led by round the world sailor David Adams, and in recent years has started to eclipse their rival Cruising Yacht Club of Australia from the opposite side of the famous harbour.

Filling the middle order on the leaderboard are three more local skippers Peter Nicholas, Tristan Brown and Sam Gilmour, all of the host club.
