RYA National Match Racing Championship 2005
Weymouth, Great Britain

The first day one of the ISAF Grade 3 RYA National Match Racing Championship got under way yesterday as 12 teams hit the water at the Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy. The day was dominated by shifty and light force 1-2 winds which proved to be testing for all competitors.
After day one the top seed Mark CAMPBELL-JAMES who is ranked at number 18 on the ISAF World Match Race Rankings leads with five wins with Christian HAMILTON,, the next highest ranked sailor at number 42 in second place with four wins.

There were several upsets out on the course, notably when seventh seed Jon PINNER beat the number three seed Nick CHERRY and second seed Christian HAMILTON in successive matches.

Although CAMPBELL-JAMES holds a definitive lead, middle scores still remain very close and most teams retain a good chance of making the knockout stage of the event on Sunday.

Racing continues through to Sunday 9 October 2005.
