RS500 World Championships - Gentle thunder on Day 6.

by Heather Chipperfield on 7 Aug 2013
RS500 World Championship RS500 Class Association http://www.rs500.org
Tuesday started with a postponement of one to five hour because of a gentle thunder going around the bay which gave us time to surprise Tobias Gustafson at his birthday with a beautiful fluorescing orange head which he was wearing during all races.

The day took off with a nice and medium breeze which was building to a strong five before moving to the right. Three races of three laps with lot of fun, swimming, and speed!

There was racing and competition for everybody and big changes in the results.

In race one a couple of teams were to eager to start and got their OCS. This was a big impact for current World Champions Tim & Heather but also the Italian team of Luca Albergo.

The first race was won by Johan Rook and Malin Broberg.

In race two there was an exciting and very busy start resulting in a general recall. The second start was much better and the fleet took off with a lot of pressure and speed.

Peter Burton/Heather Chipperfield were very fast in the upwind beat until they capsized. For the whole fleet there were testing conditions during this race especially after the top-mark. Gybing meant swimming for a bunch of the fleet which took it to a funny scene!

In race three there were bigger waves and exciting speeds. Especially the 'HongKong-guys' were taking off and flying all the way down which almost made them ‘killing’ a Swedish team.

Tim Wilkins/Heather Martin were leading yesterday, but after their OCS and not racing the third race of the day they dropped down in the overall results and not in the top 10 anymore.

Swedish couple Johan and Malin were the best team of the day with a one, five and three which shows how exciting racing it was today!

Everybody will sleep well tonight after this exciting day. But first we go for the 'Bring your own food and drinks'-party! at the harbor club!
