No change at the top, but some close scoring at Mandurah on Day 2
After 6 races and a first discard kicking in, David Gilmour & James Omay (21 points) and Aimee Negri & Breanna Vos (55 points) retain the Open and Women’s lead respectively. Angus Galloway & Alex Gough are still 2nd overall (32 pnts), but Justin Liu & Sherman Cheng (SIN) have moved up to 3rd on 30 points. Griselda Khng & Cecilia Low (SIN) retain 2nd in the Women’s (57 pts), just a point ahead of Lauren Thredgold & Megan Soulsby.
Laura Baldwin of Yachting Australia writes: “Tucking into large tubs of pasta, refuelling after a long and enduring day on the water, Lauren Thredgold & Megan Soulsby (SA) told, “We are really happy with our day, we sailed really well and it feels so good to beat boys in races, especially in the big wind!”.
“Beating all the boys to take the first heat of the day was Griselda Khng & Cecilia Low (SIN). Once the sea breeze kicked in the boys took back the lead with David Gilmour & James Omay winning the last two races and hold onto the overall lead”. Yachting Australia's Day 2 Report - excerpts
