Musto Skiff Worlds - Newman or Phillips for Title

 
The fifth day of the Musto Skiff Worlds in Melbourne, Australia, managed three races out of the four started to get the series back on schedule.

Jon Newman (1,2,4) had the best score-line for the day and sits a comfortable eight points clear of fellow Aussie Will Phillips (5,5,3) at the top of the leaderboard.

These two will contest the final day for the title, while the rest forage for third place on the podium.

This looks a three-way showdown between three Brits separated by just four points - Alex Knight, Jamie Hilton and George Hand.

Saturday Newman opened the scoring with a win in race 7 ahead of Matthias Houvenagel (2,7,7).

The second race went to Jamie Hilton (4,1,19) ahead of Newman and the third race (Race 9) to Alex Knight (3,10,1).

A fourth race was started but abandoned as a squall of 25 knots struck the fleet and the rain was stinging so hard it felt like hail - a touch of home for those from the UK!
