'We had a good day today, but you have to be able to do it day after day after day,' said CHRISTIANAKIS.
Consistency wins this regatta and the Italian team of ONORATO has certainly been consistent.
Mascalzone Latino was invincible in the flat, Mediterranean like conditions on Saturday, leading the fleet in every race. In the sloppier conditions off the Sydney Coast today Mascalzone Latino, while no longer invincible, was the next best thing.
A third and fourth placing in the first two races of the day were enough to consolidate an already commanding lead in the overall pointscore. Another win, in today's third race, makes her almost unbeatable. The Italians will need to have a very bad day at the office indeed to give their opponents a whiff of catching them this Series.
Uncharacteristic inconsistency today marred Rolex Farr 40 World Richard PERINI's (AUS) regatta on Evolution. The consistency he had displayed on Saturday, two seconds and a third, just was not there on Sunday.
PERINI bounced back in the final race, edging out Cydon for second place, and at the end of day two the Australians find themselves equal second in the overall pointscore, eleven points astern of the Italians.
Among the Sydney 38's Lisa and Martin HILL on Estate Master have taken a strangle hold on their division of the Rolex Trophy - One Design Series with another two wins. With one day left in the regatta they are 18 points ahead of their nearest rival, Stephen KULMAR's Shining Sea.
