The Australians boys and girls contesting the Laser 4.7 world championships had mixed results at today’s third day of competition on a windy San Francisco Bay.

Sailing against many of the most talented single-handed sailors in the world, the Australians have struggled to finish near the top of the two fleets contesting the boys championship and in the single girls fleet.

The best performance today came from NSW sailor Max Vos, who finished fourth in heat six, lifting him from 45th to 35th place overall. His previous best placing had been a 15th in heat one.

West Australian Ben Walkemeyer remains the top placed Australian, in 13th place overall after a ninth and a 22nd today.

Nicholas Connor, also from NSW, is 17th overall, today placing 16th and 11th.

Tasmanian Dylan Gore is 37th, today placing 18th and 35th (now his discard), followed by fellow RYCT Dinghy Group sailors Kallas Johnson 59th (placings today 27-27), Nelson Brown 66th (23-21) and Jock Calvert 67th (32-38).
