Sail-World.com : Perth 2011 ISAF Sailing Championships - RS:X women's fleet day 3

Perth 2011 ISAF Sailing Championships - RS:X women's fleet day 3

Perth 2011 ISAF Sailing Championships third day of racing for the RS:X women's fleet started in a building breeze after a short postponement.

This was going to be make or break day for Blanca Manchon [ESP] and Alessandra Sensini [ITA] who were sailing together in the RS:X Blue Group. There was determination in their faces as they left the beach to go out to the first start of the day.

They both delivered. Blanca took second and Alessandra third behind Bryony Shaw [GBR] who is on fire. Blanca slipped in the second race of the day posting an eight and Alessandra in the third with a 14th.

Sadly it looks like the dream of a podium finish is out of their hands now. They can only hope to take advantage of others' mistakes now.

As for Bryony, this is the best start to a regatta she has had since La Semaine Olympique Francaise last year. Her 1-3-2 results today mean she is the only woman in the Blue fleet with a score in single figures after the discard tonight.

Over in the Yellow Group, Lee Korzits [ISR] is also on form. That is rather understating the case. She fired in two bullets and a second today, dropped a fourth place and now has a narrow three point lead at the top of the overall results.

The other sailor who had to perform today was Marina Aalabau [ESP]. Despite the intense pressure, she did not buckle. Her 1-2-3 results put her in third place overall tonight just one point behind Bryony.

But, she is on notice. One more bad result and she is history as far as the podium is concerned.

It is these three who are well clear of the chasing peleton lead by Huang Yue [CHN] with Charline Picon [FRA] for company seven and eight points back respectively.

Tomorrow things are going to get even harder. The top 50% will race in the gold fleet so Lee, Bryony and Marina will go head-to-head. The battle for supremacy will be joined properly.

RS:X Women's Top 10
1. ISR 1111 Lee-el Korzits 5.0
2. GBR 94 Bryony E Shaw 8.0
3. ESP5 Marina Alabau 9.0
4. CHN 47 Huang Yue 16.0
5. FRA 4 Charline Picon 17.0
6. ITA 11 Laura Linares 19.0
7. POL 8 Zofia Noceti-Klpepacka 19.0

9. CHN 7 Li Ling 21.0
10. ISR 10 Maayan Davidovich 22.0
