2011 Skandia Sail for Gold day#1 - Ashley, Tobin and Kosinska get off to good starts in RS:X

RS:X Men: The usual suspects head the Men’s RS:X fleet including the NZL Sailing Team’s two representatives Tom Ashley and Jon-Paul Tobin both in the top five after day one. The Olympic champ was 3rd and 2nd overnight to hold 4th place, Tobin placed 6th and 2nd and just behind in 5th overall.

Piotr Myszka of Poland took two guns for a perfect scorecard and the lead at this early stage.

RS:X Women: Natalia Kosinska has made the strongest start of the four kiwi entries in the Women’s RS:X - finishing 6th and 7th in the two races sailed, Kosinska is in 12th position.

World Cup # 6 : Day One : Race One : 6th : Race Two : 2nd : Overall : 5th : Bit of a wait for wind to kick things off, eventually got out to complete two races in 5-8 knots, super close racing in both with a nice battle to the finish in race two with Nick Dempsey Windsurfing looks like some breeze setting up for tomorrows program...POW!!!
