Sail-World.com : Godwin granted redress for race 3 at Laser Worlds

Godwin granted redress for race 3 at Laser Worlds

Competitors at the Laser World Championship arrived early at the Terrigal venue this morning after a late start and finish to Race 3 yesterday. Principal Race Officer Tony Denham and his crew plan an early start to racing, with the first warning signal planned for 9.30am. Everyone looks a little weary this morning, but that is the nature of World Championship sailing events where the weather always dictates the state of play.

Some good news for Robert Godwin (GBR) who was reinstated in race 3 after his toe strap broke. He was granted redress: “as his position in Race 3 was made significantly worse through no fault of her own due to an omission of the Organising Authority in supplying a boat with a defective toe strap.” Godwin gets 13 points. The scores of the other boats remain unchanged.

A respected Laser sailor himself, Denham and his crew will attempt to put three races to bed by late afternoon. Should they accomplish that mission; the race schedule will then be just two races behind.

The race committee made the call after checking expected weather conditions for today. The Bureau of Meteorology predicts ideal south/south-westerly winds of 15-20 knots, tending south-east this afternoon and easing throughout the day to 10-15 knots on 1 to 2 metre seas and a south/south-easterly swell of 2 to 2.5 metres.

Tomorrow’s current outlook looks fine too, with east/nor-easterly sea breezes at 10-20 knots on 1 to 2 metre and a south-east swell of around 2 metres.

As the boats left the ramp this morning, at around 8.45am local time, the skies were a genuine blue with a few white fluffy clouds. We are all crossing our fingers for a dry day – just for something different.

First race away this morning is the Robson Civil Projects Qualifier Race 4, followed by Boral Qualifier Races 5 and 6.

Julio Alsogaray (ARG) heads out to the race course with a two point lead over world champion Tom Slingsby (AUS) and a three point lead over the USA’s Brad Funk. However, Alsogaray has two bullets in his score, so leads the Championship with some confidence.

In other news, as well as Godwin getting redress, in the second incident, the Race Committee protested ITA193085. “ITA193085 knowingly broke Rule 31.1 (touching the pin end starting mark) and by not exonerating, broke Rule 2. ITA193085 is disqualified from Race 3 and her score shall not be excluded (DNE).”
