Price, Killian go 7-0 on opening day of Governor's Cup

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (AP) Harry Price of Australia and Christophe Killian of the host Balboa Yacht Club each went 7-0 Tuesday in the opening races of the 51st Annual Governor's Cup International Youth Match Racing Championship.

The two skippers will face each other on Wednesday.

Killian and Price finished third and fourth last year behind winner Nevin Snow of San Diego and the world's current top-ranked match racer, Sam Gilmour of Australia. Snow and Gilmour have aged out of the regatta, which is limited to sailors under 23.

George Anyon of New Zealand is third with a 6-1 record followed by Will Boulden from the Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club in Perth, Australia, at 5-2.

Price is ranked No. 6 in the world match racing rankings while Killian is No. 16.
