Ciudad de Santander Trophy – First medal winners announced


'MEDAL RACES DAY 6 - Ciudad de Santander Trophy 2013'    Jesus Renedo/ Santander City Trophy    Click Here to view large photo

Ciudad de Santander Trophy, the test event for the Santander 2014 ISAF Sailing World Championships, is currently underway. Racing in the Men’s and Women’s 470 and Finn class concluded with British sailors taking both 470 gold’s and New Zealand’s Josh Junior picking up Finn gold.

The Medal Race spots for the remaining Olympic events were decided as the test event enters the end zone.

A south westerly breeze coming in at 7-8 knots made its way into Santander Bay for the Medal Races whilst 12 knots of breeze was prevalent on the outside courses.

Finn
With seven wins across ten races New Zealand’s Josh Junior took a well-deserved gold medal in the Finn after a second in the Medal Race.

The Race Committee was able to get racing underway at 13:16 local time but a passing ship forced abandonment. When racing got underway again at 13:54 Junior, who was fourth in the start of the initial Medal Race, used the knowledge he had quickly gathered to take the early lead which he maintained for a large portion of the race.

As Junior approached the finish Eduard Skornyakov (RUS), who had trailed him all race long, found something from nothing as a shift pushed the Russian ahead of Junior, gaining 100 metres in the process.

The hard work had already been done by Junior as he came through in second, 'It was tricky,' said the Kiwi after racing. 'There were big shifts coming down the course and big pressure differences as well and there’s a lot of tide.
Again I think people are going to have to practice to get used to it so it’s going to be hard next year.

'It’s been good practice to learn the conditions but there’s a lot of work to be done for next year.'

Spain’s Alejandro Muscat took silver and Egor Terpigorev (RUS) finished in third.

Women’s 470
Hannah Mills and Saskia Clark (GBR) trailed Lara Vadlau and Jolanta Ogar (AUT) by three points coming into the Medal Race with Sophie Weguelin and Eilidh McIntyre (GBR) also in with a shot in third.

The Austrians had the better of the pre-start as the advantage went their way with both British teams needing to do something special or rely on the Austrians faltering. It turned out to be the latter as Clark explained, 'The plan was to stick to the Austrians in the pre-start and get to the windward mark and see where we were and what needed to be done. We were actually a bit behind the Austrians at that point in time so we kept our options open for the next upwind and we had an opportunity to get across them and they had a big loss so that put the boats in-between us that we needed.'

Vadlau and Ogar slipped to fifth which allowed Mills and Clark to take the Medal Race victory and gold. Weguelin and McIntyre came through in second which was not enough to move into second as the Austrians took silver and the Brits bronze.

On the victory Mills added, 'It’s always nice to win an event, especially an international one. Saskia and I are just finding our rhythm again and it’s taken a little bit longer than we hoped it would take. The last part this week we really feel as if we’ve made steps forward again and getting back to where we were last summer.'

Men’s 470
Luke Patience and Joe Glanfield had gold wrapped up ahead of the Medal Race and sailed through in fourth to end a strong week for the pair on a number of race courses.

Jonas and Niklas Lindgren (FIN) finished fourth in the Medal Race to end on 68 points whilst Sweden’s Anton Dahlberg and Fredrik Bergstrom complete the podium.

Men’s RS:X
Another steady performance from the Netherlands’ Dorian van Rijsselberghe gives him a 13 point advantage over Julien Bontemps (FRA) heading into the Medal Race. The Dutchman is all but guaranteed at least a bronze medal.
Nick Dempsey (GBR) occupies the final podium spot on 37 points, four ahead of World 1 Ivan Pastor (ESP).

Women’s RS:X
Charline Picon (FRA) is well in control of the Women’s RS:X fleet and holds a 12 point lead over Byrony Shaw (GBR) who is second on 30 points.

The fight for silver and bronze could be the key one to watch on the final day as Blanca Manchon (ESP) sits on 35 points and Eugenie Ricard (FRA) has 36 points.

49er
Fred Strammer and Zach Brown (USA) had a steely day in the 49er taking a bullet, second and a third to move up into second place. With only the Medal Race to go the Americans trail Spain’s Diego Botin and Pablo Turrado by five points.

Laser Standard
Jesper Stalheim, (SWE), Juan Ignacio Maegli (GUA) and Nick Thompson (GBR) continue to jostle in the Laser and heading into the Medal Race there is very little separation.

All three sailors are guaranteed a medal as Stalheim and Maegli sit atop on 19 points with Thompson third on 21 points. It will be a winner takes all Medal Race that will go down to the wire.

Laser Radial
Manami Doi (JPN) held onto the Laser Radial lead despite two bullets from Turkey’s Cagla Donertas from three races. Doi sailed a consistent day adding an extra nine points to her score card with a 4-2-3. An eighth from Donertas in the second race of the day meant she was only able to claw back a point from the Japanese sailor.

Nacra 17
Last off the race course at 17:40 was the Nacra 17 fleet.

Making it count on the penultimate day was Austria’s Thomas Zajac and Tanja Frank. The duo had a perfect day winning both races to knock Great Britain’s Ben Saxton and Hannah Diamond off top spot since they grasped it on the opening day.

Both teams have 20 points and a near symmetrical score card of four bullets, a second, two thirds and two fourths. Having won the last race of the day the Austrians hold the leading spot.

It’ll go down to the wire on the final day as both teams battle it out for gold.

The final day of racing at the Ciudad de Santander Trophy commences at 11:00 local time.
