Kiwi Sailing Duo Regain the Lead at 470 World Championships
After 11 of the scheduled 14 races, kiwi duo Simon Cooke and Peter Nicholas hold a 3 point lead in the 470 World Championships In Italy.
3 races were sailed today, and two 4th placings were enough for Cooke and Nicholas to regain their overall lead. A 12-16 knot onshore breeze combined with large seas, provided close racing in the shifting conditions.
The kiwi pair lead Greece, with an Australian crew a further 9 points adrift in 3rd.
Two races are scheduled for tomorrow. The final race will be on Wednesday.
After 11 races kiwi crews are placed as follows: Men Simon Cooke/Peter Nicholas 1st Andrew Brown/Jamie Hunt 28th Stephen Keen/Philip Keen 35th
Women Shelley Hesson/Linda Dickson 18th
