Etchells Worlds 2012 Day 4 Results

'SAILING - Etchells Worlds 2012 - 20-25 February 2012, Sydney (AUS)

START LINE'    © Andrea Francolini Photography

Its getting to the business end of the 2012 Etchells Worlds being sailed off Sydney Heads. After today for race seven onwards the worst race drop comes into play. Hit refresh on this story at any time for the latest news.

Day 4 - a Sydney summer day right out of the brochure with a light north easter blowing and flats seas.

Principal Race officer Ross Wilson and his Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron team set a windward-leeward course on the offshore Manly Circle course, with a heading of 025 and a course 2nm from the start to the top mark, with the run about 1.5nm. The breeze was a north easter at eight knots.

There was a general recall for the first race of the day. The second start under a Black Flag, was clear.

At the top mark for the first time David Clark (Fifteen) the winner of the Etchells Pre-Worlds last week, led from the series leader Tom King (Iron Lotus) and Vince Brun (Manace) with John Bertrand (Triad) fourth ahead of Peter McNeill (Iris III) and Jud Smith (Roulette). Then came Graeme Taylor (Magpie) and Noel 'Nitro' Drennan (Boat X).

At the bottom mark Clark was about three boat lengths ahead of Tom King and John Bertrand, both very close behind. Then came McNeill. Brun rounded on the right buoy all by himself. The wind was quite shifty so the Race Committe signalled a course change to 040.

At the top Mark for the second time Clark led, but Tom King had taken some distance out of him. Next came Bertrand, Brun, McNeil, Smith, Taylor and then big gap to others. Drennan round in about 12th. The wind has increased to 10 knots and big swings in direction up to 15 degrees each way, were happening.

Race 5 finish (provisional) went to David Clark, second to Tom King, then John Bertrand, Vince Brun and Jud Smith who had slipped inside of McNeill. Next was Graeme Taylor.

At this stage it seems that King is starting to clear out from Smith, Taylor and Bertrand (after the drop comes in) and this group has begun to separate away from the rest of the championship contenders.

The fleet lined up for Race 6, yet another general recall and a Black Flagged restart.

The wind had lifted to a 12-14 knot north easterly seabreeze and the swell was up a little. The course heading was 030 and was 2.2nm to the top mark.

That man Smith first at the top mark in race six, he had started in the middle of the right hand end of the line, had a clear lane all the way. He rounded a length ahead of David Clark, another length back to Matthew Chew, then John Savage, Michael Manford, John Bertrand overlapping, Mark Langford, Mark Richards, Peter McNeill all together then just a length to Cameron Miles, Graeme Taylor, Jervis Tilly, then Tom King (12th) - just 51 seconds off the lead.

Down the run, Smith led Chew by 100 metres ahead of Clark, Savage,Langford, Miles, Bertrand. King is now back in the pack.

Smith led the fleet to the finsh ahead of Smith, Chew, Clark, with some separation between them. Then came Mark Langford, John Savage and Michael Manford. Looking for Tom King now, he has certainly sailed his drop.
