Burl­ing slips

Waikato Times Weekend - - RACING -

Pe­ter Burl­ing slipped back to 15th and Amer­ica’s Cup ri­val Nathan Out­teridge snapped his mast in a pitch pole on day two of the moth world cham­pi­onships in Italy.

Fifth over­all af­ter a solid day one ef­fort, Team New Zealand helms­man Burl­ing could man­age only eighth and 11th in his two races on Lake Garda yes­ter­day. It was a much more event­ful day for Out­teridge, the Aus­tralian skip­per of Artemis Rac­ing pow­er­ing to a dom­i­nant win in his first race be­fore crash­ing at high speed in race two. He still com­fort­ably did enough to qual­ify for the gold fleet, fin­ish­ing 35th, as did Burl­ing.
