Day 2 Aussie Champs - 2 Horse Race

Lachlan and Finn Gilbert

Day 2 of the Australian Champsionships became a two horse race with father and son teams Lachlan and Finn Gilbert and Paul and Austin Taylor separated by one point with 7 races completed and one drop.  The Gilberts, on 12 points, managed three wins on a spectacular day on Princess Royal Harbour.  The Taylors sailed to one bullet and 3 thirds and are a threat on 13 points.

The highlight of the day for the sailors was the screaming reach from 3 to 4 in Race 6 which had the fleet planing beautifully against the backdrop of the town.  Squeals of joy were coming from some boats with the girls in Transom Note having a hoot of a time.
