New Zealand has four in the top ten at the Volvo Youth Sailing ISAF World Championships 2006 in Weymouth, England. The NZL Yachting Trust Youth Team go into the final day of racing tonight.

Jason Saunders and Bruce Kennedy are 4th overall in the Boy's 420 and will be hoping to finish the regatta on a high note. The pair, from the Tauranga Yacht & Powerboat Club, placed 14th and 5th in the two races sailed overnight (NZT).

Matt Coutts had his performance of the regatta last night going out and recording two race wins in the Laser class. He jumps from 17th place up into 10th overall.

The kiwi board sailors sailed only one race and both held onto their top ten placing. Scott Davies is unchanged in 10th position and Justina Sellers stays in 9th overall in the Girls division.

The regatta concludes tonight (NZT).
