International Moth Worlds- Three bullets in a row for Greenhalgh

International Moth World Championships 2014

International Moth World Championships 2014 - Day 2: Racing started around 1pm after the Westerly sea breeze came in.

Blue fleet made up for their lost race from Saturday and then sailed two more races in the best of the breeze.

Yellow fleet were too far East to get the full effect of this and only managed a single race in what was a long day on the water for them. The race team moved Yellow fleet further west once Blue fleet were sent ashore, but the gradient and sea breeze were cancelling each other out and racing was abandoned for the day.

Robert Greenhalgh (GBR) was the man in Blue fleet who managed to stay up on the foils more than anyone else. Only top Australian helms Nathan Outteridge and Scott Babbage were able to keep in touch at all with Greenhalgh in the first race of the day.

Robert said after the racing, 'Confidence is high - that's three wins in a row and I was leading the race which was abandoned at the end of the day. In the light airs today it was very important to get off the line and after that I was very happy with my speed.'

David Cambell-James on the leeward mark boat took particular note of Robert's start in Blue race three particularly, 'He started on port at the pin end and crossed the fleet comfortably. He was off.'

Chris Draper ended his day on a better note with two fifth places after pushing it a bit too hard in the early Blue fleet race, 'I was pushing it a bit hard downwind and speared it in just before the finish. To make things worse Simon Hiscocks just got past me on the line.'

Draper's 12th in race two is currently his discard, with his other counting result being a sixth.

Stevie Morrison has been consistently getting results around 15th and was happy with his day on the water. After finishing 50th at the nationals, he had some setup advice from Nathan Outteridge which has helped his foiling stability immensely. Even so, Stevie said the top guys can pull a new piece of kit out of the bag to gain a bit more pace, or as Nathan jokingly said at the bar having a beer with Stevie, 'You just need to spend to win in this fleet!'

With only three or four qualifying races completed so far, depending on which fleet each helm is in, qualifying has been extended into Monday with the reserve day on Tuesday now being used for Gold and Silver fleet racing. Sunday's Yellow fleet will head out early to make up for their lost race.

The overall results to date are tricky to show with the fleets out of sync. Of the Brits, Robert Greenhalgh is looking good with three bullets and an eighth and Chris Rashley has one,two,one in his three races. The Antipodeans are also looking strong with Josh Mcknight scoring three,one,three, Scott Babbage with two,two,three,four and Nathan Outteridge scoring three,two,two after his gear failure before race one of the series gave him a DNC.

There are a few more who've been knocking in results in the top ten such as Rob Gough (AUS), Ben Paton (GBR), Andrew McDougall (AUS), Tom Offer (GBR) and Christopher Rast (SUI). With the light winds set to continue into the week, this kind of consistency could well be key to getting a podium result.

The stunning weather does make the racing very watchable from the Hayling Island beach. Why not come down, bring a set of binoculars, some suntan lotion and ice cream money to enjoy the unique sight of 138 foiling Moths battle it out in UK waters.
