Nixon’s Nudge ahead of the fleet at the NSW Melges 24 States    
Mon, 26 Nov 2012

Day two of the NSW Melges 24 State Titles on Lake Macquarie and a classic building sea breeze with a worn left hand track made Green Point a well-used headland. Some competitors enjoying the lift a little too much overlaying the mark.

The Nixon family on Accru played the shoreline and demonstrated effective boat handling as the afternoon wore on and the wind increased. An almost clean sweep for the day for Accru leaving them in the envious position of first place going into the final day of racing ten points ahead of the next boat David Bull Jester. Bull will need to sail well with minimal errors on day three in order to fend off Damian Huon Huey II. Damian sailing with his nine year old son James in the crew has had a good regatta peaking towards the end and only one point behind Jester but another four boats are well within striking distance.
