420 World Championship - Singapore and Spain out front

by 420 International Class Association on 31 Jul 2014
420 Open Racing Christian Beeck
Racing got underway on day three of the 420 Worlds in a 12-15 knot breeze from the north, perfect conditions to complete the final two races of the race qualification series. With the discard kicking in after race 5, some shuffling on the leaderboard as teams discarded their worst score in the 420 Open and 420 Ladies fleets.

The 111 teams in the 420 Open fleet are now split into a 56-boat Gold fleet and 55-boat Silver fleet for the six race final series, which gets underway on Friday 1 August. The 84 teams in the 420 Ladies fleet will be split into equal Gold and Silver fleets of 42 boats in each.

The lay day on Thursday 31 July gives teams a chance to enjoy the party tonight at the Championship venue, with boat work, sight seeing and relaxing on the agenda for tomorrow.

Spain continues to hold the top overall nation slot, with five teams in the top 10 across both the 420 Open and 420 Ladies fleets, putting themselves in a good position to retain the Francis Mouvet Trophy they have held since 2012.


A win in race 5, briefly handed the overall lead to Portugal's Diogo Pereira/Manuel Macedo in the 420 Open fleet, as overnight leaders Adrian Domminguez/Calixto Abalo (ESP) scored a 32, their worst result so far, and dropped down to fifth.

But the discard after race 5 soon changed the leader board again, and a new team surfaced at the front in the shape of Jose Manuel Ruiz/Fernando Davila (ESP) who finished second in race 6 and jumped up to take the lead by six points. Team mates Dominguez/Abalo were back on form to claim a sixth place finish in race 6 and end the qualification series in second overall. ISAF Youth World gold medallists Jia Yi Loh/Jonathan Yeo from Singapore are in third, after recovering from a now discarded 31st in race 5.

Pereira/Macedo held on to their place within the top ten and move through to the final series in sixth overall.

Of the twenty-seven nations competing in the 420 Open fleet, twenty-two have teams advancing through to Gold fleet for the final series.

420 Open –Top 10 Overall after six races
1. Jose Manuel Ruiz/Fernando Davila (ESP) – 19 pts
2. Adrian Dominguez/Calixto Abalo (ESP) – 25 pts
3. Jia Yi Loh/Jonathan Yeo (SIN) – 26 pts
4. Hippolyge Machetti/Sidoine Dantes (FRA) – 27 pts
4. Muhamad Faizal Norizan/Ahmad Syuki Abdul Aziz (MAS) – 31 pts
6. Diogo Pereira/Manuel Macedo (POR) – 34 pts
7. Maxime Pedron/Eliott Michal (FRA) – 39 pts
8. Ido Bilik/Ofek Shalgi (ISR) – 41 pts
9. Aggelos Arvanitis/Theofanis Kanakaris (GRE) – 43pts
10. Swann Hayewski/Alexis Thomas (FRA) – 44 pts


Kimberly Lim/Savannah Siew (SIN) retain their overnight lead and go into the final series heading up the gold fleet. Italy's Carlotta Omari/Francesca Russo Cirillo move up to second overall and Greece's Aikaterini Tavoulari/Fotini Koutsoumpou (GRE) are in third.

The Greek pair enjoyed a massive leap up the leaderboard after their disqualification in race 2 saw them well down in the pack, but with that now discarded from their results they count an all top-10 scoreline. But, their race 2 result will still haunt them, as the teams around them count all top ten results, the pair have no margin for more double digit scores. Another new team moving into the top 10 are Germany’s Theres Dahnke/Birte Winkel who finished with a 3,4 today.

Early leaders and ISAF Youth World Champions Silvia Mas/Marta Davila end the qualification series in fourth.

A close outcome for Germany’s Silke Hahlbrock/Juliane Zepp who were the final team to complete the gold fleet line-up on tiebreak over Theresa Loeffler/Theresa Heilingbrunner, with both teams on an equal 97 points.

Of the 21 nations competing in the eighty-four boat 420 Ladies fleet, 14 are represented in the Gold fleet. With all the top teams now racing against each other, the game plans and race tactics are likely to unfold just a bit differently as the competition intensifies over the final six races.







Ladies – Top 10 Overall after six races
1. Kimberly Lim/Savannah Siew (SIN) – 9 pts
2. Carlotta Omari/Francesca Russo Cirillo (ITA) – 10 pts
3. Aikaterini Tavoulari/Fotini Koutsoumpou (GRE) – 14 pts
4. Silvia Mas/Marta Davila (ESP) - 19 pts
5. Souzana Bakatsia/Nikoletta Papageorgiou (GRE) – 20 pts
6. Paula Barcelo/Margarita Alba (ESP) – 20 pts
7. Nuraisyah Jamil/Umi Nurwahida Sallehuddin (MAS) – 22 pts
8. Carmen Davila/Julia Davila (ESP) – 23 pts
9. Elena Picotti/Maria Coluzzi (ITA) – 24 pts
10. Theres Dahnke/Birte Winkel (GER) – 31 pts

A reserve day on Thursday, ahead of the final series getting underway on Friday 1 August 2014. Two races for each fleet on Friday with the Gold fleets starting first, followed by Silver.

Participating nations in the 420 World and Ladies World Championships are: Angola, Argentina, Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, Chile, France, Great Britain, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Poland, Portugal, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, USA.
