The Buddy Melges Challenge
Sheboygan, USA

Day three of the third annual Buddy Melges Challenge saw the completion of the Round Robin and the beginning of the Quarter-Final Knockout Stage.
Nicky Souter and her Australian team remained undefeated through the round robin, but perhaps showed some vulnerability as she was over early in her first quarter-final match with Renata Decnop (BRA) and suffered her first loss of the regatta. She recovered and won the second match to tie the series 1-1.

In the second quarter-final, Julie Bossard (FRA) leads Olivia Price (AUS) 2-0. The third quarter-final saw Anna Tunnicliffe (USA) go over early in her first match but she recovered and holds a 2-0 lead over Ru Wang (CHN). In the fourth quarter-final Genny Tulloch (USA) won the first match and Anne-Claire Le Berre (FRA) tied it up 1-1 with a win in the second.

The day began with 10-15 knots of Northwest breeze and sunshine. As the day progressed the wind clocked to the Northeast and the velocity dropped down to 4-6 by the end of the day.

The quarter-finals will conclude tomorrow and be followed by the semi-finals and 5-8 sail offs. The Finals and Petit Finals will be sailed on Saturday.
