Day 3, Sail Auckland - RS:X leaders Ashley and Ellingham continue to dominate

Just one day of racing remains at Sail Auckland 2011 off Takapuna Boating Club with the podium
places set to be decided tomorrow.

After a grey morning the day turned into a sunny scorcher with light and at times patchy westerly
breezes ranging between 6-15 knots on the Hauraki Gulf for racing in the Olympic, Paralympic and
invited classes.


On day three consistency was key in the shifty winds and Tom Ashley blew off the chasing pack
by coming home with two race wins from two races sailed. After yesterday the points spread was
just three between first and fourth, but at the end of the penultimate day the Olympic champ has
marched out to a six point lead from Antonio Cozzolino.

Dorian van Rijsselberge is in third place with Jon-Paul Tobin in fourth.

It was a similar story in the Women’s fleet where Kate Ellingham dominated on day three scoring
two wins and consolidating her lead on the fleet going into the final day. Natalia Kosinska holds onto
second place five points behind.
