Day 3 – NZ Nationals 8 February
After 2 days cancelled racing, and a long day out on the water, the National series was completed today.
2012 London Olympic silver medalist and 2013 World and European Champion in the Olympic 49er skiff, Peter Burling is the 2014 National A Class Champion. The result was handed to him in race 2 after Glenn Ashby, rounded the gate for a 3rd lap in a 2 lap race! Consequently, Ashby’s result was 5th, otherwise Ashby would have won on count-back.
Ray Davies came 2nd and Murray Philpott 3rd. Master: Andrew Landenberger (Aus)
Grand Master: Peter Melvin ( USA)
Great Grand Master: Simon McKeon (Aus)
Tomorrow is a measurement day in preparation for the 2014 Worlds, which begin with practice racing tomorrow.
