Craig Heydon, Thursday, 26 January 2012Australian sailors have enjoyed a strong day on the water at round two of the ISAF Sailing World Cup in Miami, Florida.

Day three highlights included 470 crew Mathew Belcher and Malcolm Page extending their lead at the front of the fleet, Brendan Casey moving into third overall in the Finn class and Women’s Match Racers Olivia Price, Nina Curtis and Lucinda Whitty putting themselves in the box-seat to qualify for the quarter-finals.

In the Women’s Match Racing competition Australian’s Olivia Price, Nina Curtis and Lucinda Whitty have moved a step close to the quarterfinals with just one race remaining in the round robin.

Price and crew are currently second in their group, siting on seven wins and three losses.

“We had another solid day with two wins and just one loss against Lucy MacGregor of Great Britain,” said Whitty. “The race against Lucy was a solid one however she just managed to get us on the finish line.

“We’ve still got one more race tomorrow, it’s very tight on the score board so we’ll have to wait and see but we’re really enjoying sailing here and looking forward to the next few days,” she said.
