Armit & Rennie-Younger Well Placed at Youth Worlds

Josh Armit & Annabelle Rennie-Younger Well Placed at Youth Worlds


Josh Armit might be forgiven for thinking it was groundhog day at the youth sailing world championships in Sanya, China, last night.

The 16-year-old was first and 14th in his two races in the boy's Laser Radial yesterday - identical to his results on the opening day. It left him in third overall, six points behind Italy's Guido Gallinaro in lead with three days remaining at the youth worlds.

Armit, who is the under-17 Laser Radial world champion, was the best placed of the 14-strong NZL Sailing Foundation youth team competing in China.

Annabelle Rennie-Younger is still in the mix in the girl's Laser Radial, but slipped two places to fifth overall. It didn't help she was disqualified in the first race of the day, her discard for her worst result of the regatta, but rebounded strongly with a fourth in the second race.

The top two sailors in the fleet - American Charlotte Rose (3 points) and Dolores Moreira Fraschini from Uruguay (7 pts) - have jumped out from the rest of the field but Rennie-Younger is only three points off third.

Her disqualification has put some pressure on and she can't really afford another slip-up with 41 sailors in the fleet.

Seb Lardies and Scott McKenzie made the biggest progress of any New Zealand crew yesterday, jumping from 16th to seventh in the boy's 29er. The pair, who were expected to be in the mix after winning the US 29er national championships and finishing fifth at this this year's 29er world championships, banked a second and third yesterday but will be disappointed to round it out with a 17th.

There's still plenty of time for them to push for a podium finish but they will need to sail consistently well over the final three days to be in the mix.

Greta Stewart and Henry Haslett are the only other Kiwi crew inside the top 10 and are currently eighth in the Nacra 15. The catamaran class is presently being led by Belgium's Anne Vandenberghe and helm Lucas Claeyssens who, at 14, is one of the youngest of the 374 sailors competing in Sanya.

Three more days of racing are scheduled.

Howard Davis Review: From Free Press to Fancy Dress - Spielberg's The Post

Stephen Spielberg's The Post is an opportune newsroom drama in which a corrupt Republican president wages war against the "liberal media," as its plucky proprietor risks economic and legal ruin to bring the Pentagon Papers to public light. Its true protagonist is publisher Katharine Graham, a stringently diplomatic businesswoman, reluctantly compelled to take an overtly political stance in the interests of democracy and freedom of the press.

Howard Davis Review: The Black Dog of Empire - Joe Wright's Darkest Hour'

On the eve of England's contorted efforts to negotiate its ignominious retreat from Europe and the chaotic spectacle of the Tory party ratifying its undignified departure from a union originally designed to prevent another World War, there has been a renewed appetite for movies about 1940.

Howard Davis Review: Anger Begets Anger - Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

For fans of what Ricky Gervais termed "number movies" (Seven Samurai, The Magnificent Seven, Ocean's 11, Se7en), Martin McDonagh's latest offering will be a welcome addition to the roster. The Irish playwright turned screenwriter and director has produced another quirky and darkly comic tragedy that evolves around the futility of anger and grief, retribution and revenge. More>>

Howard Davis: Sexting in George Dawe's Genevieve - Part I

Te Papa's permanent collection includes an enormous oil painting by the English artist George Dawe called Genevieve (from by a poem by S.T. Coleridge entitled 'Love') that was prominently featured in the 2013 exhibition Angels & Aristocrats. Compare the massive immensity of the bard's gorgeously gilded harp with the stubby metallic handle of the Dark Knight's falchion, both suggestively positioned at crotch-level. Dawe's enormous canvas invokes a whole history of blushing that pivots around a direct connection to sexual arousal. More>>

Ethnomusicology: Malian ‘Desert Blues’ Revolutionaries To Storm WOMAD

Malian band Tinariwen (playing WOMAD NZ in March 2018) are a true musical revolutionaries in every sense. Active since 1982, these nomadic Tuareg or ‘Kel Tamashek’ (speakers of Tamashek) electric guitar legends revolutionised a traditional style to give birth to a new genre often called ‘desert blues’. They also have a history rooted deeply in revolution and fighting for the rights of their nomadic Tamashek speaking culture and people. More>>

Gordon Campbell: Best New Music Of 2017

Any ‘best of list’ has to be an exercise in wishful thinking, given the splintering of everyone’s listening habits... But maybe… it could be time for the re-discovery of the lost art of listening to an entire album, all the way through. Just putting that idea out there. More>>
