10 Dec 2015

“That was an ideal start to the regatta,” Patrick acknowledged. “We had a comfortable speed and a good handle on the breeze.”

Onto race day 2 and Carrie Smith and Jamie Ryan (AUS) were still not giving any opportunities away and hold firm to the lead in the 470 women’s fleet with a perfect score of four wins from four.
