Murray Jones, the skipper of Cruising Yacht Club of Australia, takes the lead after Day Two of the Nespresso Youth International Match Racing Cup.
The skipper along with his crew Tara Blanc-Ramos, Benjamin Robinson and Angus Williams have broken away from the group finishing on top after this day’s racing. Jones was quite happy with the result and he feels that his team are settling into their brand new spots well. Jones smiled when questioned if he felt a lot of pressure to bring the cup back to CYCA, and said not really, he were just happy to be doing well as of now.
Second placed following the round robin is the Royal Port Nicholson Yacht Club William Eastman, who said that it might be a great improvement on yesterday, but it was not as easy out there as the results might reveal.
George Anyon, the 3rd qualifying RNZYS Youth Training Programme captain, had a good day losing just 2 matches to both Eastman and Jones. Anyone, who has new man Patrick Haybittle becoming a part of his regular team of Logan Andresen and Josh Wijohn for the regatta Anyon told that Haybittle is fitting in quite well and knowing much more in each race.
Clare Costanzo and William Dargaville, the Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club captains, qualified fourth and fifth respectively. Costanzo is the top placed female captain after the 1st round robin. RNZYS YTP Matthew Hughes got 6th spot, while Cyril Fortin and Tom Picot (the Cercle Nautique Caledonien skippers) are placed 7th and 8th in the list.
