Australian 470 Championship 2010 - Four in a row for Page and Belcher

Belcher and Page

Australian 470 Championship 2010 Day 2 report.

Mathew Belcher and Malcolm Page won their fourth consecutive race of the series with South Australia's Shane Hughes and Felix Paterson sailing in second and it was the Singaporeans who crossed the line in third.


The race committee were quick to act on the deteriorating conditions, sending the fleet back ashore when the fleets finish. The coaches towed all the boats in and after a two hour postponement racing was abandoned for the day with the scheduled start bought forward an hour to 10am.

1 Mathew Belcher/Malcolm Page (AUS) 4.00
