Olivia Price, Nina Curtis and Lucinda Whitty also had a strong day on the water, picking up another four wins with just a single loss on day two. “Today's conditions were really volatile, meaning that big leads were hard to defend,” said Price. “We had five races this afternoon, with one loss to American Genny Tulloch, bringing our overall scorecard to nine wins and two losses. “We had a very exciting race against Anna Tunnicliffe of the US, where we were trailing by quite a way until we got in touch with her up the second work,” she said. “Down the final run we forced three separate penalties on her for luffing, gybing too close and then breaking proper course restrictions, which enabled us to take the race win. “It was a long day on the water in very hot and dry weather, but we’re looking forward to another full day tomorrow where we’ll finish the round robin and then start the quarter finals in the afternoon.” The Buddy Melges Challenge runs until Saturday 27 August.
