Andy Kearnan (CYCA) showed his 35 years sailing experience, picking up a 3rd, 2nd and finishing with a gun in the final race "It was a good day on the water with an average of 15 knot winds on the Waitemata, we're really enjoying the hospitality at RNZYS and looking forward to the rest of the weekends racing".
Matt Rouzaid's' RNZYS team also had a good day, claiming two second place finishes which has left them sitting in 3rd position overall--a tidy result for the local team who will be trying to win on their home harbour.
CYCA teams finished 2nd at Harken International Youth MR (RPAYC), 2nd at Musto IYMR (CYCA), 3rd at Warren Jones Regatta (RPYC), 1st at Hardy Cup (RSYS), 1st at Nespresso IYMR (RNZYS
) and 1st at CentrePort YMR (RPNYC).
Various craft were suggested including the Yngling (adopted by the RSYS), Elliott 5.9 (being used for sail training over the ditch in Auckland at RNZYS
), which could be ideal for inter-dominion racing, and larger yachts such as the J24 (very popular at the time) and Duncanson 32.

Slam Dunk (RAYC & RNZYS
) was a convincing winner with an assured performance.
In their first few years at the YSA, Jarvin, Newton and crew won the 2003 Governor's Cup (Balboa Yacht Club, CA, USA ), the first CYCA team to ever do so, won the Harken International Match Racing Championship twice; and the RNZYS
International Youth Match Racing Championship (2005).
