IODA World Sailing Championship - Asia dominates top five

by IODA on 6 Jan 2011
Noppakao Poonpat (THA) - IODA Worlds IODA Worlds
Optimist World Championship (IODA World Sailing Championship), Langkawi Malaysia. January 5th report.

Three more races were sailed today and even when positions can still change, sailors at the top of the ranking can start feeling more 'at ease'. Noppakao Poonpat took victory on the second race of the day and finished 11 and 9 in the other two, consolidating her as the leader of the fleet. She is the only sailor that has finished among the top 15 in all the races.

Ryan Lo Jun Han from Singapore had better results than Noppakao today (1,2 and 8) but a couple of bad races on the previous day do not allow him to catch up with Noppakao and is now 15 points behind her. In third place and tied in points with Ryan is Jirawat Jadklay from Thailand.

The Asian dominance in the top ten is only interrupted by Bart Lambriex from the Netherlands in sixth place and by Odile van Aanholt from Netherlands Antilles, 10th overall.

Top five after 11 races - Provisional Protests pending
1st THA Noppakao Poonpat
2nd SIN Ryan Lo Jun Han
3rd THA Jirawat Jadklay
4th JPN Okada Keiju
5th MAS Ahmad Syukri Bin Abdul Aziz
