Finn Silver Cup - Snakes and ladders in Malcesine

At the Finn Silver Cup in Malcesine, Italy, it was a day of snakes and ladders on Wednesday. Racing began early again with the same solid north wind, but the difference was that light rain greeted the sailors. Temperatures remained warm so nobody was complaining.

The first race started with 15 knots of wind and the usual pin end favoured line and the race to the cliffs on the left was popular. So popular that several boats started early and three boats were scored as OCS, while one other disqualified for touching the pin mark. Martin Robitaille (CAN) and Peter McCoy (GBR) had the best starts and were first to the cliffs and first at mark 1. They sailed well to hold their positions and take first and second respectively, ahead of regatta leader Jorge Zarif (BRA).

Race 2 began much the usual way, but had a few twists and turns for the fleet than previously. After starting in 10 to 12 knots the wind died gradually on the first run and on the second beat temporarily stopped on the far left, before filling in again from the north. This was the first time the right side of the course paid all week, but the sailors that returned left further up the course gained the most. Zarif and Jakub Marciniak (POL) mastered the conditions best and moved through the fleet to finish first and second, with Robitaille in third.

Race 3 was the most difficult of all. The wind had dropped to under five knots for the start and a big left windshift made starting on starboard difficult. The boats that started at the committee boat had much more wind and took a big advantage immediately. This group of 12 boats managed to stay in pressure for the first beat and eventually the pressure returned evenly over the race course. From this group Zarif, Ondrey Teply (CZE) and Arkadiy Kistanov (RUS), emerged to finish top three.

With a 3, 1, 1 Jorge Zarif has taken a solid 13 point lead with three races left in the championship. Martin Robitaille moved into second following a 1, 3, 5. He sits five points ahead of Jake Lilley (AUS) in third who scored a 6, 7, 7 today.

Two races are scheduled Thursday morning at 8am.
