GC32 Worlds - Team Tilt storm the Leaderboard

 
Team Tilt take the lead but tied on points with Oman Air after 7 races

Sébastien Schneiter’s Team Tilt, with Aussie Glenn Ashby on board, picked themselves off the bottom of the leaderboard to take the overall lead on day 2 of the GC32 World Championships.

With two race wins and nothing worse than a fourth, they are tied on 31 points with Oman Air and ‘the Million Dollar Man’ skipper Kiwi Phil Robertson.

Just one point back in third place is Ernesto Bertarelli's Alinghi, present leader of the Extreme Sailing Series.

SAP Extreme Sailing Team with Kiwi helmsman Adam Minoprio were in prime position until the final two races knocked them back to fourth place for the day.

And day 1 leaders INEOS Rebels UK came down to earth with a bump, never breaking into the top three and finishing the day in fifth.
