James Wells, Tom Ashley and JP locked together in dice for selection
Posted On: 23/01/2004 16:40:41
Twenty-one year old James Wells from Bucklands Beach scored his third bullet of the series which sees him take the overall lead from Tom Ashley. It took some time for the wind to settle intop a steadt direction in the morning so, only one race was possible. It also proved to be another successful day for 2003 Yachting New Zealand Youth Team member David Robertson, who crossed the mark in second place, in front of Matthew McCormick.
There will now be a break in the programme with no racing tomorrow or Wednesday. The Race Committee are in the process of deciding whether to resume racing on Thursday, a day earlier than scheduled, to avoid having to hold races in the heavier winds forecast for the weekend. This could mean that the eleven races are completed at the end of Friday 23 January. The outcome of this decision will be publicised later in the week.
