Optimist World Championship Day 2

Day 2 of the 46th Optimist World Championship saw a further three races in slightly more wind than day 1.

Jens Marten (GER) retained his lead with a fine 1/2/5, results only bettered by Russel Kan (SIN) with 1/2/4. Kristian Kirketerp (DEN) moved into second place while Ian Barrows of the U.S. Virgin Islands retained third.

Perhaps only in the Optimist Class could one see five of the six continents represented in the top eleven.

Among the girls Rachel Lee (SIN) had an uncharacteristic poor day and must wait until the first discard is taken after race 6 before re-entering contention. The new leader is Naomi Mannering (NZL) just three points clear of Florencia Prego (URU).

Also awaiting the discard will be Ivan Aponte (PUR) whose nett 14 points could bring him firmly back into contention, but pre-regatta favourite Logan Dunning-Beck (NZL) must sail very carefully for the rest of the series if he is to recover from two OCSs already in the series - Logan, it can be done: look back at Hannah Mills in 2003!
