Day Five Australian Nationals

Krystal finishes day five off with a 19th and 1st, now sitting in 4th overall with two more races to go.

Today was a very tricky day in queensland. We had a tricky easterly wind blowing today with 40* shifts. The first race was tough as I had a terrible pin end start where I missed the lay and had to tack. I tacked a infringe a another boat so I had to do a 720 (two spins on the spot). For the rest of the race I was playing catch up, it was so shifty but I just couldn’t pick it right.

For the next race, I really backed my game plan and went out to the right hand side after a good start at the boat. From there I just protected my lead after rounding first at the top mark.

Tomorrow will prove to be an interesting day, as it will be the decider for many boats.
