Team NZ has a better day in Marseille

7:37 am on 19 June 2010

Team New Zealand has had a better second day at the Marseille MedCup yachting regatta moving up to seventh overall.

Dean Barker's crew scored a fourth and a third to improve two places overall.

Quantum Racing of the United States still leads the regatta with the top eight boats all within nine points of each other.

With six races still to be sailed, Barker says it's all on.

Still racing in conditions not suited to the New Zealander's boat, Barker says today's results might not sound so great but it was the second best performance of the day.
