Childerley Discards His Ninth Place

Amazing set of results, with two more races left to sail, sees Childerely 42 points clear of 100 boat fleet.

There's little information at this time from the Etchells Worlds in Auckland, but I think the results speak for themselves.

Two more races took place yesterday in the standard 20-25 knots.

6 races are to count, meaning the fleet have already discarded their worst result. For Childerley and crew this was their ninth place in race 5, which gives them a top three scoreline in all their other races.

Saturday sees two more races scheduled, and if both completed the skippers can drop another two races.

A top 35 finish in the next race will see Childerley, Russell and Marino, win the Championship with a race to spare.

This will make things pretty interesting for the pack of Aussies chasing the podium positions, with Miles, Bradford, McNeill and Manford all within eight points of each other. It was Manford who put himself into the picture yesterday with a 2,1 scoreline. Bradford, an early contender for the lead, has slipped into third place with his worst results so far - a 23 and 39.
