Team NZ inch closer to leaders

Update: 5:36PM TEAM New Zealand have inched one point closer to Swiss leaders Alinghi after another difficult light-air afternoon in the Muscat round of the Extreme Sailing Series.

Skipper Dean Barker and his crew will go into the final day of the regatta in third place in the 11-strong fleet.

They are five points behind Alinghi and one point off Danish entry SAP, and with top prize still up for grabs.

In the eight races sailed on day three, Team NZ had four top-three finishes as all teams experienced mixed results in winds that didn't rise above four knots.

"We had to battle for every point in every race," Barker said.

"It felt like a very average day but we managed to come ashore in third place. It certainly didn't feel like that on board."
