'Waiting for wind - 2013 CentrePort International Youth Match Racing Championship'
Day 2 of the 2013 CentrePort International Youth Match Racing Championship got off to a slow start as the sailors waited for the southerly breeze to arrive.
By late morning the breeze had built to a point where the sailors could head out to the track and get racing underway to complete the final two flights of Round Robin 1.
After twenty seven matches the very last match of the round robin ended up being between Ash Rooklyn’s team from the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia and Sam Gilmour’s team from the Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club, both of whom were on six wins. In a tight match Gilmour managed to come out on top and take the early psychological advantage at end of the first preliminary stage.
