against Australia II skipper John Bertrand Tuesday by making the Aussies play our game and avoiding tacking duels with the more manueverable foreign boat on Rhode Island It takes two boats to I and my guess is John would have liked to see the boats tacking said who hoped to clinch the bestofseven series He tacks very well and we felt we would be better off tacking as little as We tried to make him play our game a little Its all part of the Australia tacks awfully So unless theres a real good reason to we he Tacking is a zigzag manuever to change course by bringing the front of the boat through

full advantage of his boats ability to turn quickly during the tacking manuevers on the windward he tacked only occasionally and tried to outrun Liberty after falling behind at the start by six We were playing the wind shifts We were mixing it We obviously gained at one stage Liberty had a two boatlength lead and we were able to get back to no lead at Bertrand Midway through the first Conner responded by guiding his ruby red boat to the windward side of the picking up a wind shift and surging Ber trand stuck to his strategy on the two final windward legs but trailed Liberty by at least
