Finn Silver Cup - Zarif seals title on penultimate day    
Fri, 12 Jul 2013

At the 2013 Finn Silver Cup, with one race left in the Finn Junior World Championship, Jorge Zarif (BRA) has sealed the title after a series of consistent races. On the penultimate day, Zarif scored a third and a second place and is now untouchable. Jake Lilley (AUS) struck back with two bullets to pass current World Champion Martin Robitaille (CAN) by a few points.

The last race in the championship will decide Silver and Bronze, and there are five sailors who can still stand on the podium.


As usual, racing started at 8am with a 18 knots breeze. And as usual, the pressure along the left side, down the cliff made choices predictable. The leaders gathered in the middle of the starting line and sailed upwind to the cliff. Peter McCoy (GBR) after a great start and a good speed up the beat, passed the top mark in first place, trailed by Lilley and Zarif. The Australian passed the British on the run and remained in the lead until the finish.

The start of the second race was evenly spread on the line but it took three attempts to have a clear start. The wind was stable and around 14 knots, providing another great race.

Lilley took a good start and was first at the cliff followed by most of the fleet. Closely followed by 2009 Junior World Champion Zarif, Lilley increased his lead steadily to win a second race.

Strong wind races and early starts have made for a testing regatta for the young sailors who are also enjoying a good rest each afternoon.

The last race will start at 8am on Friday and will decide Silver and Bronze.

Unless there is a major breach of rules, Zarif is sure to get Gold. This will be the 2nd Junior World title for the Brazilian who had won the Silver Cup in 2009 on Balaton.
