America's Cup

Kiwi take first day at Red Bull Youth America’s Cup

New Zealand teams emerged from a tight pack to take two of three podium places on day one at the Red Bull Youth America’s Cup. But the racing is close; just three points separate first from sixth place after two races.

Peter Burling’s New Zealand Sailing Team was the most consistent performer on the day, with a second and fourth place finish to top the tight leaderboard. His Kiwi rival, Will Tiller, on Full Metal Jacket Racing, won the second race of the day, after posting a 7 in race one.
Tiller’s team is equal third place on points with the Swedish and American Youth Sailing Force teams.
