2010 Skandia Sail for Gold Regatta - Kiwi’s tackle tough conditions on day four

The transition from qualifying to the finals series at 2010 Skandia Sail for Gold Regatta in Weymouth was heralded with shifty and tricky conditions on the Weymouth race track. From here the regatta moves into the penultimate day when, for those within reach, it is all about being in the top ten of the fleet to make the medal race on Saturday in England. After last night’s tough conditions nine of the NZL Sailing Team still currently have a spot in the top ten.

Skandia Sail for Gold Regatta is now at the halfway point with three days of racing completed and three to go in Weymouth, England – the site of the next Olympic Sailing Regatta. A lovely sunny day in Weymouth with good consistent breeze provided sailors with opportunities to consolidate on their results after the turbulent conditions yesterday (Tuesday). There are some shake-ups in the overall standings as the first discard comes into effect.

A wild and windy day on the water tested the NZL Sailing Team competing at Skandia Sail for Gold Regatta in Weymouth, England. It was all about survival out on the race course today with gusts of up to 25 knots. Jon-Paul Tobin was on fire on day two repeating the form of the Star boys on day one, with two wins from two race sailed, taking him up into fourth place overall in the Men’s RS:X fleet. Tom Ashley is in 13th place after two 4ths.

2010 Skandia Sail for Gold Regatta in Weymouth, England - NZ Olympic windsurfers are competing

It was all about the weather on day one. In last night’s team briefing Hamish Willcox stated that today would be a day to look out for anything and everything and he couldn’t have been more accurate. All classes reported unstable, shifty conditions on the water leading to a mixed set of results for most competitors on the water. With a frontal system approaching from the west overnight tomorrow may bring more of what this young team have been training in over the last fortnight.
