Scott Barnes (RNZYS) and Sam Gilmour (RFBYC) still hold the lead with 8 wins each on day two of the RNZYS Harken Youth International Match Racing Championships 2013. After another day of impressive close racing on the water, the duo hold a two point advantage over the four next placed skippers all tied on 6 wins each.

Both Barnes and Gilmour won 2 out of 2 races today; all of them within a margin of seconds, with the exception of Gilmour’s Flight 13 race against Stephanie Doyle by 2 minute 55 seconds, a margin that is unusually large in this extremely tight competition.

The four teams tied on 6 wins each are Malcolm Parker (RPAYC), Claudia Pierce (KIYC), Charlie Lalumiere (PYC) and Adam Middleton (RPNYC), although Parker and Pierce have the advantage with one further race to sail.

Pierce took 2 wins out of 3 races today, including a hard fought win against George Anyon (BBYC). Anyon led for the first three legs until, on the downwind, Pierce kept her cool and overtook to catch spectators by surprise and take the race by 5 seconds. Smiling as she crossed the finished line Pierce looked at the media boat and said 'it ain’t over till it’s over!'

Lalumiere commented about the day; 'It had its ups and downs', finding his first race against Hannah Osbourne (RNZYS) tough due to the tricky Auckland Harbour tides.

Christophe Killian (BYC) had a very successful day with 4 wins from 4 races and made a significant jump up the leader board from yesterday. Killian described the day as very light and very shifty; 'If you had one bad shift it was all over, but we were lucky enough to be on the right side of the shift for all of them'.

In the battle of North America, USA vs Canada; Killian (BYC) and Richard Minielly (RVYC) were side by side going into the bottom mark rounding, and to complicate things, Middleton and Lalumiere were beside the bottom mark in their pre start. Killian had the inside, touched the bottom mark, Minielly failed to give buoy room and umpire Collette Kraus gave them both penalties. Killian was the one able to gain the advantage and take the win by 43 seconds.

Shifty, patchy and fickle are words that summed up the day from all skippers; Middleton summed it up nicely as; 'It was tough', followed quickly by 'And you can quote me on that'. Needless to say he is looking forward to some decent breeze tomorrow.

Race Officer Megan Kensington also commented 'Getting four flights completed today was more than I expected given the day’s forecast'.

Racing is scheduled to commence at 10am tomorrow with Flight 14. At the conclusion of Round Robin One the top eight ranked skippers will go through to the Quarter Finals.
