Morrison/Rhodes trail Aussies at 49er Worlds

Andrea Fonseca & Rodrigo Duarte have made a good start to qualifying Brazil for the Beijing Games - Day 2 2008 49er Worlds Jeff Crow/ Sport the Library © http://www.sportlibrary.com.au
Britain's Steve Morrison and Ben Rhodes are in third place after the second day of qualifiers at the 49er World Championships. Australia’s Nathan Outteridge and Ben Austin lead at Sail Melbourne with the Hansen brothers from Denmark in second.

With the first discard in place, Outteridge/Austin are three points ahead of yesterday’s leaders, brothers Peter and Soren Hansen from Denmark, who dropped to second place overall. Their downfall was a 14th in Race 5, which they used as their discard.

'We got two firsts and a seventh – we cleared out at the starts and just kept going fast – we led pretty much whole way from top mark in the first two races,' Outteridge said.

'In our third race (Race 6), someone tacked on top of us and we couldn’t get away, but we were happy to make seventh. It could have been worse,' the 22 year old said.

'Our major threats are the Hansen brothers and the defending world champions Stevie and Ben (Morrison/Rhodes from Great Britain). I wouldn’t rule out the Olympic gold medallists from Athens either (Iker Martinez/Xabi Fernandez),' he added.

Racing started on time in an 8-11 knot northerly, but lightened out to a top strength of around 8 knots, averaging around 5-6 knots, turning nor-nor-easterly and shifty.

Morrison and Rhodes’ group was last off the blocks. Keeping good their promise to protect their world champion status, the pair scored 8, 5, 1 results to hang in at third place, using the eighth place as their drop. They are five points behind the leaders.

The Italian Sibello brothers, Pietro and Gianfraco, and Rodion Luka/George Leonchuck (UKR) respectively worked their way into fourth and fifth places after each won his group’s Race 6 this afternoon. Both pairs came into their own in the fluky light winds.

Brazil’s hopes of qualifying for the Beijing Games to be sailed off Qingdao next year, moved closer to reality when Andrea Fonseca/Rodrigo Duarte scored 1,8,4 places for 12th place overall.

That was not the case for Irish brothers Russell and Matthew McGovern. 'It’s not going according to plan,' said a disappointed Russell. The two finished their day with 10,12,8 results and are 30th overall.

'Racing is really good, tight –and nice wind, but things aren’t going so great for us. It’s tough, I hope we get more wind tomorrow, we’re better in that,' added Matthew.

A tricky day for Race Officials with a couple of general recalls and incidents. In one group’s pre-start there was a pile-up at the start boat causing a few collisions. Seven competitors were Black Flagged, four OCS’d and others not finishing racing. It proved costly for those trying for Olympic qualification.

Results are provisional pending protests. The Sail Melbourne ISAF Grade 1 event continues tomorrow.
