2018 Nationals Day 4 Update
Today 3 races were completed in 20+ knot and moderating shifty and variable South wind which tested the very best.
There were no surprises with the usual suspects consistently able to pick the pressure lines and shifts to get ahead of the pack.
The winners today were Mike Holt/Rob Woelfel, Mike Quirk/Joel Castle, Mal Higgins/Nick (Camel) Johnston.
The overall standings after 5 races are:
1 Mike Holt/Rob Woelfel proving the reason why they are current and 3 times world 505 champions.
2 Mal Higgins/ Nick (Camel) Johnston.
3 Mick Babbage/James McAllister
4 Mike Quirk/Joel Castle
5 Jan Saugmann/Marcus Cooper
Competition between 6 female sailors is proving to be a close battle between 16 year old Christie Bowden crewed by Ian Gregg who is now leading Amy Lee crewed by Justin Mulkearns.
Tomorrow is forecast a light 10 knot southerly with 3 races starting midday.
