ISAF Sailing World Cup Hyères: RS:X Gold Medals go to Europe + Video

'Moana Delle (GER) after winning the Womens RS:X - ISAF Sailing World Cup Hyeres - Final day'    Yvan Zedda ©

Germany's Moana Delle brought her Olympic sailing career to a glorious end as she claimed gold in the Women's RS:X, at the ISAF Sailing World Cup Hyères.

Piotr Myszka (POL) had Men's RS:X gold wrapped up in advance of the Medal Race.

Racing got underway just after 11:20 in Hyères with a pleasant westerly breeze that increased as the day went on.




Women's RS:X


Wu, Delle and Dziarnowska - Womens RS:X Medalists - ISAF Sailing World Cup Hyeres - Final day -  © Franck Socha - ISAF Sailing World Cup Hyeres  
It was a three way shoot out in the women's RS:X between Maja Dziarnowska (POL), Jiahui Wu (CHN) and Moana Delle (GER).

The three windsurfers had all guaranteed themselves a medal going into the final race but the colours were far from certain, as two points divided the trio.

There was very little separating the racers as a clean start saw them bunched up together. As the race progressed it was Wu who held the gold at the first mark, rounding ahead of Delle whilst Dziarnowska was down in tenth.

At the downwind mark Delle and Wu were neck and neck but the German squeezed past the Chinese sailor on the inside and kept tight to the mark and pushed forward, leaving the Chinese sailor trailing.

Delle pushed forward and whilst the race win went to Peina Chen (CHN) an eighth was enough for Delle to bring her RS:X sailing career to an end, 'It's my last regatta and last race and it couldn't have been any better. It's the perfect way to end my Olympic career.

'It was quite a challenging race physically. We've had 15 races in planing conditions and this was a light wind race which was a bit of a change. The top girls matched each other and we didn't do so good in the Medal Race but I came first.'

Conditions have suited the German racer and it will be a memorable way for her to leave life in the RS:X behind as she returns to her studies, 'It's been a perfect regatta. We've had the most beautiful conditions. It was around 15 knots every single day. I'm from Germany and I'm just enjoying France, sunshine and blue water. It's just beautiful.'

Wu finished the Medal Race in ninth as she took silver whilst a disappointing last place finish for Dziarnowska gives her bronze.

Men's RS:X

Myszka, Tarnowski and Van Rijsselberge - Mens RS:X - ISAF Sailing World Cup Hyeres - Final day -  © Franck Socha - ISAF Sailing World Cup Hyeres  
Going into the Men's RS:X Medal Race the top three podium spots were occupied by Polish racers.

Whilst Piotr Myszka (POL) had gold all wrapped up and Pawel Tarnowski (POL) silver up his sleeve but the bronze medal was far from certain. Przemyslaw Miarczynski (POL) had the advantage but 2012 Olympic Gold Medalist, Dorian Van Rijsselberge (NED) was breathing down his neck.

Van Rijsselberge knew what he had to do, and ahead of the Medal Race looked focused on the race course. He came out strong from the off and took the lead at the first mark. On the downwind he slipped to second but was strong on the upwind and took control and held the lead all the way through to the finish.

Miarczynski finished in fourth to go level on 83 points with the Dutchman. But as Van Rijsselberge took the victory, the bronze went his way.

Myszka sailed pressure free in the Medal Race and took a fifth. On the 16 race series Myszka commented, 'It was a really nice week for me and I've really enjoyed it. I was probably the fastest guy in the fleet and I was improving every race. I was going faster and faster.

'It was really important for me to improve on my speed and technique this event and I'm really happy with that.

'Everything is working and going the right way. It's the Polish in the top two positions this year, just like last year. Last year I was second and Przemyslaw, who is fourth here, finished first.

'But this year I've won and Pawel is second so it's quite nice. We were expecting Przemylsaw to defend third position but he lost it in the Medal Race. It's quite sad but it's nice to have two Polish places on the podium.'
