Getting down to business before medal races at ISAF Sailing World Cup

'Pieter-Jan Postma - 2014 ISAF Sailing World Cup Hyeres'    Thom Thow Photography

ISAF Sailing World Cup Hyères 2014 - The penultimate day of racing at ISAF Sailing World Cup Hyères is a key one with the Medal Race places decided across the ten Olympic events.

Racing in the 2.4mR and Sonar reaches the end zone as the action draws to a conclusion.

Anything is impossible in the Paralympic events with any one of leading three in the 2.4mR and any of the top four in the Sonar in with a shout of taking gold.

Around the boat parks in Hyères there are contrasting reports.

There will either be a serious lack of breeze or the light variable morning east north easterly at 5-8 knots will veer to the east at 10-14 knots. It will move to a south eastern direction in the afternoon easing throughout the day.

Either way the day will decide the Paralympic and Medal Race places.

The ISAF TV team covered the Nacra 17, Laser, Finn and Women’s 470 fleets with some great racing action in Part one and two below:
