The only kiwi crew racing at the Etchells World Championship is sailing under the RAYC burgee. Dirk Kneulman, Anatole Masfen, and Andrew Wills are racing at the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club and are currently sitting just intside the top 10 with three races sailed so far.
The team managed a 12th in the first race after ripping their spinnaker and hastily making a bare-headed change, and followed this up with a 9th, 15th, 10th, and a 4th in the subsequent racing. The racing is tight with just 20 points separating the team from 1st position.

Solid breeze is forecast for the rest of the regatta.
Good luck guys!
