4 NZ'ders in the top 12 in the fickle sea breeze on day 2 of the 2011 Laser World Champs

Wellingtonian, Josh Junior had an awesome day 2 to move into 2nd overall, 1 ahead of Mike Bullot (pictured), leading 4 NZ sailors in the top 12.

“I’m stoked. It’s awesome,” said Junior after racing. “With the 1,2 it all seemed to go my way, the best day ever. I seemed to manage to really work the right hand side and got the shifts right and stayed in front.”    “We have seven sailors here all looking for Olympic qualification so it’s going to be tough.”    “There was probably eight knots dropping to four at times and usually pressure on one side and not the other and I got early into the right pressure well. Another day like that would be awesome.”

Andrew Murdoch remains in the top ten holding onto ninth place overall after an 11th and a 2nd on day two, and Andy Maloney takes a giant leap up the board into 12th place sailing solidly last night with a 4th and a 10th.

But in these conditions consistency is needed if the current discards come back into play.
