Sisters Kate and Greta Stewart have edged up the overall scoreboard in the 29er girl’s class during the third day of the Aon Youth Sailing World Championship following some consistent results in today’s racing off Torbay in Auckland.

Now sitting in 2nd, the New Zealand girl’s team improved throughout three races sailed today with their string of results reading 5,3,2 in the 24-strong fleet.

NZL Team on the hunt for medals at Aon Youth Sailing World Championships

The Stewart sisters don’t really know where their loyalties lie when it comes to next year’s America’s Cup with father Ian part of the Oracle team this time around but they know exactly what flag they are racing for at this week’s 2016 Aon Youth Sailing World Championships in Auckland.

Kate (18) and Greta (16) are part of a 13-strong New Zealand team competing at the youth world championships off Torbay. The pair claimed bronze in the 29er skiff in Malaysia at the last world event and are a strong medal chance when sailing gets under way on Friday.
