IOM European Championship - Two Brits at the top on day 5 + Video

'2012 IOM European Championship'    Dean Miculinic

The sun disappeared behind the clouds today, day five of the IOM European Championship and so did the wind. Despite the light conditions, the race scheduled continued normally and the first set of races was completed within the first hour.

France’s Olivier Cohen seemed to like these slow races and having the time to develop his strategy; he took advantage of the shifts and scored the bullet. Overall leader Brad Gibson from Britain had his worst race at the championship so far but that did not seem to affect him so much since his main opponent Alexis Carre had a disappointing performance and did not even manage to qualify at Heat A.

After the completion of this first race the wind died completely and the race committee was forced to postpone races for an hour waiting for conditions to be optimal for racing again. Weighting all their choices they finally decided to change the race area and move it to the southern course where the wind had started to pick up. So everyone gathered their equipment and headed there. This time it was Croatian’s Skrlj to shine. He had a great start on leeward and after a few meters tacked and headed close to the shore. After that, it was one way victory. He just maintained his lead for the rest of the race and finished first. With today’s performance he managed to climb in to eighth place overall.

At the top of the list is still UK’s Brad Gibson and now followed by his compatriot Graham Elliot that after two top finishes today is a strong candidate for the podium. Third in line is Croatia’s Zvonko Jelacic with an exceptional day as well. He managed to throw off the podium Alexis Carre that is now fourth.

As this championship slowly reaches to a closure, the pressure rises and the last days are not to be missed.
