Team NZ still top with a day to go

12:22 pm on 25 July 2009

Team New Zealand tops the leaderboard going into the final day's racing at the latest MedCup yachting regatta in Sardinia with a fifth and a second place off Cagliari.

Four and a half points separates the regatta leaders from Artemis of Sweden.

Team New Zealand's Grant Dalton summarised it as "winning ugly" after emerging in second place from a mentally bruising second race which saw Artemis recover from 10th to steal three places at the bottom of the final run.

Artemis won the first race from start to finish.
