Team RPAYC slip to 7th after Day Three at NYYC Invitational

On Day Two Team RPAYC had another victory in Race 3 followed by an 11th and 18th in the next two races to sit equal 5th after Day two.

But with a DSQ in Race 6 on Thursday and a 6th the team slipped two places to be 7th with two days left to sail.

The official report said on Team RPAYC's DSQ, "Australia’s Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club was overlapped with Larchmont Yacht Club as they bore down on the finish leading Larchmont to call for Royal Alfred to sail their proper course. The umpires then flagged the Aussies, who did not do their penalty turn, and they were subsequently disqualified from the race. It would appear that nothing short of a miracle is needed now to put Royal Alfred back in podium contention."

On the 26th of June Shaun and I flew into England to begin our first ever Europe campaign. After a few days of recovery we went and picked up the boat in Lymington and spent over 7 hours working on it, making it feel as familiar as possible. For the next few days we trained and got our heads around the boat as we competed in the Lymington town regatta.

Max Vos Farr 40 World Championships report

The goal for our Farr 40 worlds campaign was not result driven; it was based around the opportunity to gain invaluable experience in world-­‐class fleet. As I sat in the tactician’s briefing at 18 years old with Terry Hutchinson on my left and Vasco Viscotto on my right I realized that we had achieved this even before the start of race 1.
