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."
