Optimist World Championships - Mixed bag on day 2 + Videos    
Fri, 19 Jul 2013

On the second day of racing at the 2013 Optimist World Championship, there were highly variable conditions. In the first race, the wind settled at 8-10 knots, allowing the lighter sailors to do well after the medium-strong wind of yesterday. By mid-afternoon, after an enforced break waiting for a steady breeze to return, the Race Committee was able to complete another four races, one for each fleet.

Singapore continues to dominate in the overall standings with two sailors in the top three overall: three wins and a second to SIN 115, Loh Jia Yi, who maintains the championship lead. Fast behind him, German, Nils Sternbeck posted two wins today after a fourth and second yesterday. Third, Edward Tan of Singapore with two thirds yesterday and a first and an eighth today. The Italian Peroni Dimitri was second in the third race, he slipped to nineteenth in the last race in the lighter breeze. It was a good day for GBR sailor, Labrouche, with a second and ninth which leaves him two points behind Peroni. In the women's ranking the Spaniard Maria Bover Guerrero is ruling (5-8-12-12 to date), second Ceci Wollman (Bermuda, excellent second in the first race of the day) and the third Slovenian Jana Germans, third overall in the race 3. It will be interesting to see how the overall rankings change after the discards come into play.

We have one more day of fleet racing tomorrow before a break for the Team Racing Championship.
