Manuel Champalimaud is the new leader of the Cascais Dragon Gold Cup. The Portuguese sailor was eighth in the championship’s fourth race and has a three point advantage from Poul Richard Hoj Jensen, Theis Palm and Andrew Mordem and 8,7 from Robert Campbell, Matt Walker and Jonathan Hill, both from Great Britain.

Champalimaud with Mark Hart and Ed Streeter are showing an impressive regularity and reached the first place. An unexpected result as Champalimaud says:

'I didn’t expect to be the leader. Here, there are 74 crews that can win. My crew is doing a fantastic job. We’re a real team and all the decisions are made as a team. I think that’s the main reason why we’re so regular and sailing so well.'

Champalimaud doesn’t feel any extra pressure to win the Cascais Dragon Gold Cup: 'I just want keep sailing calmly, as I’ve been doing these days', says the helm of 'Mar'.

Lars Hendriksen, George Leonchuk and Martin Leifelt, from Ukraine scored a 1st place in Race 4, on a 12 mile course, with the south wind blowing 6 to 8 knots. Russia’s Maxim Semerkhanov, Dmitri Tereshkin and Russian Formichev were second and Ireland’s Don O’Donoghue, Brian Mathews and Mark Pettitt, ended third.

Thursday the fleet will have one race, starting at 14:00h.
