The **Wearside sailor John Robertson and his team are tie fourth at the end of day two of the Sonar sailing.
For the second evening running, Robertson and his team ended up in the protest room after alleging a "right of way" infringement by the Australian boat.
The jury decided the British team was right, and moved them up a place - while disqualifying Australia from that race.
It means Robertson and his team are tie fourth with America, but only 10 points separates the top 5 boats.
Robertson admits that while his team aren’t unhappy with their start to the regatta, they are ready to 'up the ante' for the second half of the event.
