Day four at the 2014 International Star Class World Championship will be remembered as the longer, until now, of this 92nd edition. Two races were in schedule due to the yesterday’s cancellation of the race number three in order to catch up with the program.

The first flight initially planned at 8.00 AM was delayed for two hours waiting a safe reduction of Garda’s famous southbound Peler wind. Around 10 o’clock race 3 had a great and clear start in good breeze with five Italians team among the top 10. GRE 8434 Emilios Papathanasiou and Antonis Tsotras led the fleet with an apparently safe advantage of 48' to ITA 8491 Diego Negri and Sergio Lambertenghi, 52' on GER 8442 Johannes Polgar and Markus Koy and 55' on BRA 8474 Lars Grael with Samuel Goncalves, when the rest of the fleet rounded already after one minute and more delay. At the first downwind mark of the day position one and two were unchanged, but BRA 8210 Torben Grael overlapped GER 8442 Polgar and Koy and became third in the second leg of the race.

Afterwards race 3 was characterized by a thermal wind switch of 180 degrees from northerly to southerly and ended with the second Brazilian Lars Grael and Sam Goncalves wins in a row in the series only 20 minutes prior to the time limit of a Star race in a World Champion.

After a quick lunch break, race 4 start was really aggressive as needed four sequences. It was the beginning of the second half of this championship, so the the pressure was on. Recalls, postponements and black flags saw overall 17 boats out of race 4, including BRA 8474 Lars Grael, that took his second highest penalty that put him potentially off the challenge for the podium.

The final race of the day, with a stable Ora until the end, shows probably one of the highest numbers of matches during this week, with several lead changes. Husband and wife team of SUI 8364 Flavio and Anouk Marazzi from Switzerland lead for most of the race: a really great performance, considering the pressure from GER 8340 Stanjek and Kleen, and USA 8320 Szabo and Natucci. A little more than one leg prior to the end, Szabo with the Italian crew Natucci took the lead and kept it until the finish line.

2014 International Star Class World Championship include two more races. Overall leaderboard shows USA 8465 Augie Diaz and Arni Baltins three points clear of ITA 849 Negri and Lambertenghi, followed by NOR 8317 Melleby and Prada, GER 8442 Polgar and Koy and BRA 8398 Fuchs and Seifert.

Robert Scheidt, the legendary Brazilian sailor, will be our guest tomorrow to comment the races live from the Fraglia Vela Malcesine press office.

Quote of the Day: George Szabo, winner of Race 4: 'It was a long day. We woke up at six in the morning and there was too much wind when we got to the yacht club after breakfast. A long postponement on land and then one very long race, the first race, it went close to the time limit so yeah, it’s a good feeling to have a win in the second race.'
