On the fifth day of competition at the 2012 International Association for Disabled Sailing (IFDS) World Championships the wind was steadier and was blowing from 11-15 knots out of the North for most of the day.

On the 2.4mR course the French boat with Damien Seguin at the helm held steadfastly onto first place with a second place in the fleet’s only race of the day. Thierry Schmitter of the Netherlands maintains second place with a finish in second today and Paul Tingley remains in third despite an unexpected ninth place finish. Bjornar Erikstad of Norway, ranked 10 overall, surprised everyone with a first place finish.

In the Sonars the Norwegian team of Alexander Wang-Hanse, Marie Solberg/Per Eugen Kristiansen kept their first place position with a first and third. Great Britain’s John Robertson, Hannah Stodel/Steve Thomas team remains in second place overall with seventh and fifth place finishes today. Bruno Jourdren, Eric Flageul/Nicolas Vimont-Vicary of France returned to second place with second and seventh place finishes. In the second race the American team of Paul Callahan, Tom Brown / Bradley Johnson, ranked sixth overall, vaulted from ninth place in the first race to a first place finish in the second.

The SKUD course saw some changes in lead boats. Although the British team of Alexandra Rickham and Niki Birrell maintain their first place position with a second in the first race and an eighth (which was tossed) in the second, the next boats vied for second and third positions. The Americans, Jennifer French and Jean-Paul Creignou relinquished their second spot to the Australian team of Daniel Fitzgibbon and Liesl Tesch when the Aussies finished first in the first race and second in the second race. The Americans finished third in both races. Ranked last in the class, the Canadian boat sailed by Ken Kelly and Brenda Hopkin finished the day with a first place after placing seventh in the first race.

On Sunday, the final day of racing, the Sonars and SKUDs will each race one final race. The 2.4mR races are completed. Start for the final races are at 10:25 a.m.
