An ANZAC Test Between the 4 Finalists

The last flight of the round robin was completed this morning with a surprise upset by Emma May (CYCA) defeating the event leader George Anyon (RNZYS) in light and shifty conditions. Also Harry Price (CYCA) completed his round robin defeating Sam McKay (RPNYC) which has pushed Harry up to equal first position with the teams from New Zealand.

Day 2 of Harken Match Racing

Today was a completely different day from yesterday, unsteady weather made it “extremely frustrating” to set the course, the constant wind shifts and stoppages made racing very slow, only completing 24 races as opposed to 52 on the first day.The Kiwi teams are again on top of the leader board after day 2 of racing. Sam Mackay (RPNYC) and George Anyon (RNZYS) are sitting high and dry with 9 wins out of 11 races. George is still proceeding to impress the field by defeating the top 5 seeded skippers.

HARKEN International - ANYON surprises on first day

The 22nd HARKEN International Youth Match Racing Regatta at RPAYC opened with a spectacular day of racing on Sydney’s Pittwater with over 100 Races completed in a lively15-18kt NE sea breeze. The field this year is not short on experience as although the skippers are all U21, they have already racked up 65 ISAF graded Match Race events between them. George Anyon and his team from RNZYS NZL punched well above their weight today and could be the dark horse of the Regatta. With 7 wins and 1 loss his scorecard for the day matchs that of the far more experienced Sam Mackay from RPNYC NZL. The host Club’s Clare Costanzo fared the best of the female skippers with  5 wins from 8 starts losing by the narrowest of margins to Anyon. Also off to a comfortable start was the CYCA’s Harry Price who won 6 from 7.
