Sail-World.com : Penultimate day for Laser Master Worlds

Penultimate day for Laser Master Worlds

'Standard Master Nick Carew (AUS) leads Tracy Usher (USA) - Laser Masters Worlds'   

It's tight at the top as the battle for supremacy continues in the Radial Masters. As the current leader, New Zealander Mark Orams said this afternoon: 'The three of us tussled like we always do.' He was referring to himself, Steve Cockerill from Britain and Australian Greg Adams. Orams is holding a slim five point lead over Cockerill and extended his lead to 10 points on Adams today.

The Kiwi sailor finished the day on 3-2, Cockerill 4-1 and Adams 10-3. None of the trio has had a score worst than 10. The battle finishes tomorrow.

Cockerill commented; 'I had a good first race. Lots of boats got a big shift on the left. I went right! Me and Mark (Orams) worked our way through the fleet; him to third and me to fourth, in the second race I got blown away by Chris Raab (USA) and had to work my way back. I was fifth downwind, went too far right, but on the next beat I got a nice shift on the left, I rounded second and past the leader on the run.'

'Then Orams got me and I got him back on the last three waves. It was tight and exciting sailing. 'It all happened on the reach, with the jury watching, you had to be aware of what you were doing. This is more like Australia - lovely sailing,' said the Brit.

The Standard fleet got the best of the north-east winds off Terrigal today. Starting after the Radial groups, they reveled in winds of up to 18 knots on choppy seas. After the light airs that have prevailed all week, the big breezes caught many out and there was lots of capsizing on the course and lots of tired bodies came ashore.

In the Standard Apprentice masters Britain's Orlando Gledhill is still battling for a podium place. In fourth place seven points adrift, despite another two good races, finishing third in both. Jyrki Taiminen of Finland held onto his third place with a a fifth and a first, while Brett Beyer, leading and defending his Apprentice world crown won the first one and then finished second to Taiminen. Rohan Lord from New Zealand was second in the first race and then had a fith place which he discards to stay second overall.

In the Standard Grand Masters, Keith Wilkins drops to sixth overall after ninth and a third, while leader Aussi Mark Bethwaite added another win to stay one point ahead of Wolfgang Gerz of Germany, who also won a race. It is believed this is the strongest opposition the Australian Olympian has ever faced at the Masters.

Racing concludes tomorrow and officials plan to start the day early at approximately 10.00am and Radials away first, weather dependant.
