Sydney Sailmakers Leads at the Break

The 58th Interdominions take a break today with the only scheduled layday of the series.

Sydney Sailmakers have jumped to the lead following back to back bullets in races 5 and 6 yesterday. They hold a 1 point lead from Kiwi skiff C-Tech, who had two 4th places yesterday.

Check out the results after 6 races here.

It was a testing day on the water yesterday with a variable breeze, both in terms of strength and direction. Race 5 was delayed for some time to allow the breeze to settle in.

Sydney Sailmakers took out race 5 by just a few seconds from Kiwi boat Monkey Wrench, who are having a fantastic regatta. Fill-in skipper Peter Nicholson aboard The Wolfie Ship/Skoll also had a great day out picking up 3rd place.

In race 6, Sydney Sailmakers had an excellent first work to lead the fleet by a significant margin at the first turn. However the shifting breeze allowed rival boat C-Tech to take the lead up the next work. Their lead was short live when a strong gust cause a capsize near the top mark, allowing Sydney Sailmakers to regain the lead and hang on for their 2nd win of the series.
