Rio: Qualy warm up for Bundock & Waterhouse at Sail Melbourne

Bundock-Curtis & Waterhouse-Darmanin are the top 2 Aussie crews towards the internal qualifying for Rio 2016. The official system has not being defined yet but with the spot for Rio granted by the two crews at Santander Worlds (both finished in positions to guarantee a slot)  we will surely see a tough Match Race between them. Although they will need not to overlook the others Aus boats in the process.

With the French super team, the Australian qualy will be one of the most interesting to follow, as either winner will have chances of podium in 2016. Experience vs the Young Guns... who will prevail? 

I predicted several winners in the past but with Jason latest A-Class performance (2nd behind Ashby at Bordeaux) plus the 3rd place with Lisa at the 2014 N17  Worlds and the years both have sailing together against Bundy Legend  and a  World Champ Match Race & Olympic silver medalist like Nina Curtis  I rather pass any prediction comment this time around...
