ISAF World Cup: Murdoch wins two races on a windy Day 3 at Hyeres

New Zealand's Andrew Murdoch was the top performer for the NZL Sailing Team on a weather disrupted Day 3 of the ISAF World Cup Regatta at Hyeres, France

Sailing in one of the three fleets in the Mens Singlehander (Laser) in the Semaine Olympique Francaise, Murdoch won both of his races again in very breezy conditions, and lies in second place overall. Series leader, Phillipp Buhl (GER) and Tom Slingsby (AUS), third overall, each won one race and placed second in the other.

The Race Committee started racing early due to a pessimistic weather forecast and priority was given to the fleets that needed to complete the qualification series. As such, the Mens Heavyweight Singlehander (Finn), were unable to race and Dan Slater (NZL) remains in third place overall. The Mens HP Skiff (49er) had only one race, and the Womens Windsurfer (RS:X) as well as the Womens Match Racing each had two races.

The Semaine Olympique Francaise, or simply Hyères as it is commonly known, is one of the major regattas in the International Olympic Sailing Circuit and is the fourth of seven regattas in the 2011-12 ISAF Sailing World Cup series.

New Zealand’s top crews in the other five Olympic Events are not competing at this regatta.

In the Mens Laser the competitors were able to drop their worst performance in the Qualification round, and four sailors are on equal points for second pace, with only two points covering the top six overall.

Andy Maloney is just one point behind this pack after a fourth and second place finish today he sits sixth overall. Sam Meech was disqualified from the last race of today but still remains comfortably in seventh place where he was yesterday.

Peter Burling and Blair Tuke in the Mens HP Skiff (49er) finished their one race sailed today in fifth place, and at this juncture in the regatta, the discard kicked in for them, too, and they have jumped up the leaderboard to now be seventh overall.

The Womens Windsurfer (RS:X) fleet were able to compete two races and Natalia Kosinska (NZL) slid from eighth overall to twelfth after placing 15th in race 5 and not being scored as a finisher in Race 6, which became her discard score.

The Women’s Match Racing crew helmed by Stephanie Hazard had another tough day in tiring conditions and lost both of their matches.

All classes sailing in Qualification Round fleets were able to complete their qualification stages. Tomorrow will be the first day of finals where the fleets will be plit into Gold/Silver and in some cases, Bronze. The Women Match racing will conclude their round robins.

The Semaine Olympique Francaise, or simply Hyères as it is commonly known, is one of the major regattas in the International Olympic Sailing Circuit and is the fourth of seven regattas in the 2011-12 ISAF Sailing World Cup series.

Racing started in France on Sunday April 22nd, and runs for six days with medal races and prize-giving planned for Friday April 27th.
