Hyderabad: With deeply conservative starts often in 15th position Preethi Kongara of The Yacht Club of Hyderabad was screaming to first position by the first mark with some awesome speed and some great wind reading taking advantage of every wind shift as it hit her boat.

The wind conditions were perfect with wind strength ranging from 8 to 16 knots steady and what was amazing is that the top sailors Preethi and Vijay continued to dominate even win these stronger conditions.

 

Vijay Kumar had a terrible sixth race finishing 23rd and has dropped down to second overall but still first in Boys by a huge margin.

Vishvanath Padidala of the Navy Saling School and an erstwhile sailor of the Yacht Club showed his class today with a second position in the sixth race bringing him to third overall and second in the Boys category.

In the ‘B’ Fleet Mallesh Gaddam of MJPT School dominates with Praveen Ramavath and Supriya Peramlpally topping the girls section.
