CORK Olympic Classes Regatta - Battles heat up for finals on day 4    
Wed, 21 Aug 2013

On Day four of the event, Kingston offers up another stellar day of breeze with some sailors capitalizing on the day while others falling victim.

The tight battle continues for podium position in the Laser fleet, hot on the heels of the Laser North Americans, David Wright and Lee Parkhill duke it out in 1,2 positions, followed by Tom Ramshaw to round out top three. Wright extended his lead due to an OCS by Parkhill today.

The Radial course finished three races today with American Max Lopez in the lead however CST sailors Claire Merry and Brenda Bowskill are in it to win it with only four points seperating the two, and it all comes down the last two races tomorrow!

It was a field carnage on the skiff courses today with equipment failures a plenty. Ladha/Inkpen dominated the day with a convincing three bullets to extend their lead by 19 points over training partners Mori/Barnes who moved into second ahead of the American's Downing/Brown. FX sailors Rafuse/Boyd are currently sandwiched between two American teams however are within grasp of the overall win. Tomorrow, at 12 noon, the 49er and 49er FX will each race three medal races, in an exciting spectator friendly stadium course held right off the pier at Portsmouth Olympic Harbour.

The windsurfers wrapped up their event on Monday with a convincing win by CST Alumni David Hayes in the RS:X class while Jean Sebastien Fugere was crowned the National Youth Windsurfing champion along with Fannie De Alcala.

CORK OCR will wrap up tomorrow with all fleets competing to determine the final result of the series.
