Sail-World.com : 29er World Championship - French regain the lead
29er World Championship - French regain the lead


'French sailors Lucas Rual and Emile Amoros celebrate a win in race 6'    Robert Hajduk shuttersail.com

At the 29er World Championship, the racing was close today on Kaløvig Bay with the lead for the Gold fleet changing at each race. Four races were held starting at 3pm after a postponement on shore waiting for a front to pass, but leaving behind light winds for the sailors.

In the Gold fleet, Lucas Rual and Emile Amoros (FRA) sailed a consistent day of 13-2-1-13 to regain the lead after falling yesterday in the standings. Six knots across the course persisted through the first three races with the wind shifting 90 degrees to the north and increasing in strength to 10 knots. The conditions pushed the sailors to perform at their best and the results rewarded those who did. Nick Muller and Kai Frieseke (USA) moved up in the standings to third overall by sailing a 10-5-5-6 series while Kiwis Marcus Somerville and Jack Simpson were able to maintain second overall. Previous days leaders Jack Colley and Shaun Connor (AUS) had a more difficult day and used the last race as their discard and have dropped to fourth overall.

Silver fleet leaders are Tomas and Mads Mathisen of Norway with Bronze leaders Douglas Campbell and Cameron Seagreen from Australia. Var Osborg and Eric Collet (NOR) lead the Emerald fleet. The top female team remains Ragna and Maia Agerup of Norway.
