Sail-World.com : Budzien continues to lead Finn World Masters

Budzien continues to lead Finn World Masters

Defending Finn World Masters Champion Andre Budzien of Germany continued with his winning ways in Medemblik, with two more heat wins to put him into a clear lead with three more races to sail.

On Tuesday two races were sailed in winds from 12-16 knots, with free pumping on all the downwind legs. Starting two fleets of 116 boats each presents numerous problems for the race committee as well as the competitors, but despite several general recalls each day, PRO Erik Vliegenthart (NED) is happy with the way things are going and the start line behaviour of the Finn sailors.

In both of his heats Budzien lead for the majority of the race, executing great tactics, with good boat speed and was always among the first few to the windward mark. He extended downwind to secure each victory. Other heat wins went to Adrian Brunton (GBR), after banging in the generally unfavoured right hand corner on the final upwind, and Allen Burrell (GBR), to add to his heat win from yesterday.

Overall, Budzien has a 10point lead from Mihail Kopanov (BUL) who placed 2 and 3 today, with Jan Willem Kok (NED) in third, also placing 3 and 2 today a further 5 points behind. After Wednesday's race, the discard will kick in, so that should change the results somewhat with many boats currently counting a high score.

There are just two more qualification races to be sailed - one on Wednesday and one on Thursday - before the final gold and silver heats on Friday. At the moment it looks as if there is no one who can stop Andre Budzien from taking his second consecutive Finn World Masters title.
