ISAF Sailing World Cup - Summer Blast: "A hot northerly wind from Australia’s outback blasted across the city and onto Port Phillip. In the early morning the breeze driven by temperatures in the mid to high 30's, gusted to 25 knots but had eased to a more pleasant 15 knots by the start of racing. Being an offshore breeze, the water was flat and conditions on the water were perfect for sailing. The quest for an 18th consecutive regatta win started well for Rolex World Male Sailor of the Year, Mathew Belcher (AUS). The 2012 Olympic Gold Medallist and four times World 470 Champion, with new crew Will Ryan, won the first race but stumbled in the second. Overall leader of the Men’s 470 after the first two races is the 2009 World Champion Croatian crew of Sime Fantela and Igor Marenic, who had a first and second place in the two races sailed. They are tied on the same points as second placed crew of Mathew Belcher and Will Ryan (AUS). On the overall points table, the Croatians, who are the current European Champions in the 470, lead by virtue of a count-back, having beaten the Australians in the last race of the day."
