iSail Whitsundays Contender Worlds at McCrae Yacht Club - Day 3

by VR Sport Media 23 Jan 07:10 PST 21-25 January 2018

It's official! It's a two horse race - everyone expected the duel between Bulka and Beebe - well they have it!

Two points separating them after the discard came into play after Day Three of the Contender Worlds hosted by McCrae Yacht Club, Australia. Local sailor, Mark Bulka, had a blistering day on the water with a first and second whilst Jason picked a fifth and first with only a half boat length between them both on the final race.

Similar 'champagne sailing' weather tomorrow - two races planned for Day Four - keep up to date with all of the action via Race Tracker Live: contenders.sailracer.org
