Day two of the SAP 505 World Championships in La Rochelle was another beautiful day with sailors taking to the water for the third and fourth races of the Pre-Worlds and the French International Cup – a warm up to the approaching Championship.

Racing started a little later today at 15:00 due to inconsistent wind conditions, which had already pushed back the first race. Finally the wind stabilised at an average speed of 13 knots blowing north-westerly, much to the delight of the sailors who were eager to experience some more challenging conditions compared to yesterday’s relatively calm weather.

So after two days of exhilarating Pre-Worlds action it is the British, Germans, and Americans who are currently dominating the podium. However, it is also worth noting the absence of some of the top German teams who appear to be saving themselves for the SAP 5O5 World Championship, which begins on the 21st July.

Today’s results:

Race 3

1. Ian Pinnell / Ian Mitchell – GBR 9094
2. Jens Findel / Johannes Tellen – GER 8875
3. Howard Hamlin / Andy Zinn – USA 9080

Race 4

1. Ian Pinnell / Ian Mitchell – GBR 9094
2. Jens Findel / Johannes Tellen – GER 8875
3. Andy Smith / Tim Needham – GBR 9088

Overall rankings:

1. Howard Hamlin / Andy Zinn – USA 9080
2. Jens Findel / Johannes Tellen – GER 8875
3. Augie Diaz / Luke Lawrence – USA 8808

It seems that delivering solid results amidst the pressure cooker environment of the last races is telling.
