Yendys sixth! Ninety Seven first, modified progressives!

by Rob Kothe sail-world.com on 29 Dec 2000
Modified results show Yendys actually back in 6th place, Ninety Seven still leads Telstra Sydney to Hobart.

In spite of a frightening man over board incident at 6.40pm last night, Ninety Seven leads the 2000 Race.
According to Race Organisers who released modified results sheets at 8.25am, after discovering an apparent discrepancy in their calculations.

However the situation remains fluid as yachts position themselves for the approach to Tasman Island in a complex weather pattern. A low pressure system near Maria Island is producing variable wind speeds and directions for the fleet as it closes on the coast.

Quest, the 46 foot Nelson Marek, has sailed an excellent tactical course overnight to close on the Grand Prix leaders. Ausmaid is closest to the coast with Ragamuffin and Yendys further seawards.

The next four-six hours will most likely decide the overall results as Ninety Seven, negotiates the low pressure area.
