Slingsby, Aussies look to tighten grip on SailGP lead

Two-time defending champion Tom Slingsby and Team Australia will be missing a key crewman and facing their least-favorite conditions when SailGP resumes Season 3 this weekend in Singapore. In other words, no one should count out the unshakeable Aussies, who are looking to start firming up their shot at reaching the $1 million, winner-take-all season finale in four months. The Aussies are coming off a stunning finish in Dubai two months ago that helped them take a big lead in the season standings over rival New Zealand.
