Laser 4.7 World Championships day 3 - Pin end crowd

'Laser 4.7 Worlds 2011, San Francisco'    Chris Ray ©

Laser 4.7 World Championships day 3, St. Francis Yacht Club, San Francisco, CA, USA.

Saturday morning on San Francisco Bay saw clearing skies for the first race of the day for the girls fleet. After noticing the big opportunity that Greek sailor Athanasia Fakidi found yesterday to port tack the fleet from the very open pin end, 'the girls today,' according to photographer Chris Ray, 'crowded the pin end RC boat, which actually got tapped a few times.' No stone goes unturned with these girls. After a long course, Greek sailor Vasileia Karachaliou rounded the leeward mark ahead of the fleet, only to be passed by two of her competitors as they headed back upwind. Kim Plitkin finished first, but was OCS; regatta leader Cecilia Zorzi, ITA got the win, followed by Karachaliou and Nagisa Karis Sakai of Hong Kong.

While the girls start their second race, a gun at the club goes off indicating it’s time for the 112 boys to get their boats from the lawn, down the drive, to the ramp, and off the dock before the girls come in. It’s a quick and efficient process that the Club put together in order to navigate the single ramp that all 165 boats have to go up and down every day. When a fleet arrives at the dock after racing, volunteers meet them with a dolly, the sailor takes the boat up the ramp, around a loop to a hosing station, and then back to the lawn where they carefully and meticulously go over the boat and check for any equipment in need of repair or replacement.

In the second of the girls’ races, Italian Anna Liebman won the race, but Cecilia Zorzi is still winning the event with only six points after six races. Kim Pletikin, in second with 21 points, and Line Hoest, in third with 29, will face a tough challenge over the next three days to hold their places and get ahead of Zorzi.

The boys’ yellow and blue fleets started on time at 1400 today; after a recall, the races started under black flag and nine boats were flagged. After all clear starts in both fleets, the boys headed upwind in a building ebb with wind ranging from 13-17 knots. The wing marks tended to make the race into a contact sport as the boys converged to get the closest rounding they can, jibe, and head to the leeward mark on a high speed reach. The teachings of Dave Perry come to mind (if you see a big cluster at the mark, go around it and at all costs avoid protests) as the boats squeezed together, hailed protest, and slowed each other down.

Nevertheless, the Spanish regatta leaders Francisco Gonzalez in first with six points and Carlos Rosello in second with ten points, along with Hong Kong’s Keiju Okada in third with 22 points bobbed and weaved their way through the traffic and on to top finishes.
