Sail-World.com : Yngling team add Team GBR's third Gold this year

Yngling team add Team GBR's third Gold this year

Sarah Ayton, Sarah Webb and Pippa Wilson successfully completed their Medal Race appearance to confirm their second Yngling World Championship title. They had already taken victory in Miami with a day to spare and had only to sail the final race to conform with the rules.

The trio, which earned the nod for Olympics after winning both the 2007 World Championships in Cascais and the Olympic Test Event in Qingdao, dominated the 28-boat fleet from the first day of the regatta.

Their world title is Skandia Team GBR’s third of the year, adding to Ben Ainslie’s gold at the Finn Gold Cup, and Nic Asher and Elliot Willis’s win at the 470 Worlds in Melbourne last month.

As defending champions and among the favourites heading into the event, ‘Team Mirabaud’ weren’t prepared to let the title slip from their grasp.

“In the past we’ve been in the same position, but have made a few mistakes. This time, I think our experience helped pull us through. We just sailed really consistently throughout the week – we had some pretty tricky conditions and some big breezes and so our teamwork has really shone through.”

The focus was on the silver and bronze placings and in a building breeze the ten boat fleet got away with most going for the pin end of the line. Siren Sundby of Finland was judged over the line but did not restart so scored an OCS for the race.

The French team of Anne-Claire Leberre were away well and it was a match race for the lead between them and the another Finnish team lead by Silja Lehtinen, with the French taking the gun after a gybing duel at the finish.

The Australian team of KrystalWeir, Karyn Gojnich and Angela Farrell took the overall Silver and Ulrike Schumann, Julia Beck and Ute Hoepner of Germany the Bronze.

The other British crew at the Yngling Worlds, Shirley Robertson, Annie Lush and Lucy Macgregor, finished in eighth place.
