2011 Crewsaver Mirror Nationals Day 2

Conditions remained light today, and resulted in the first black flag of the event following several attempts to get the first race off to a clean start. Eight boats were black flagged, and in the current difficult sailing conditions this could well prove costly to those concerned in the final standings. On his 16th birthday Rory Mackenzie got off to a fine start with a win in race 3 and a 4th in race 4, which together with the first of the discards kicking in left him in second place overall just one point behind leader Nigel Thomas. Older brother Calum Mackenzie / Rob Thomas continued to put in consistent results in races 3 and 4, which moved him up to 3rd place overall eight points behind the leader. Nigel Thomas / Milly Moss continue to grind out the results with a 2nd and 1st in todays races, just giving them the edge over Rory Mackenzie / Harvey Martin.

Up and down the fleet the results continue to show large variations from one race to the next for the majority of competitors, as they try to combat the wind shifts, wind strength and tide.

After Nigel Thomas / Milly Moss and Katie Davies / Gemma Keers won the aggregate buddy prize for the Day 1 races, today it was the turn of Rory Mackenzie/ Harvey Martin and local Penzance crew Becca Stephens/Lisa Prichard to claim the aggregate buddy prize.
