Slingsby, Aussies take lead in SailGP’s Singapore regatta

Two-time defending SailGP champion Tom Slingsby and Team Australia used two good starts in fickle light wind to finish second in both races and take the lead in the Singapore Sail Grand Prix. The consistent performance in conditions that have been the Aussies’ weakness gave them a four-point lead over Britain and Canada, with the United States and Denmark another point back. After Sunday’s fleet races, the top three boats will advance to the podium race. Slingsby is chasing his third straight season championship and $1 million prize in tech tycoon Larry Ellison’s global league.
