Sail-World.com : Laser Radial World Championship - Gold and silver fleets decided
Laser Radial World Championship - Gold and silver fleets decided

'Laser Radial World Championships 2012'    Laser Worlds

At the 2012 Laser Radial World Championships in cold but sunny weather, with oscillating winds between 15 and 28 knots, the sailors in Boltenhagen finished the last races of their qualifying series before being divided into the gold and silver fleets for the finals. The choppy waves out on the Wohlenberger Wiek proved challenging and again there were several capsizes.

The two Finnish competitors seemed to feel right at home and both scored a first and second in today's races. This pushes Sari Multala from fourth to first place overall, three points ahead of Lija Xu (CHN) who is steady in second place. Alison Young from Great Britain drops to third place as the results of a ninth and fourth place in the yellow fleet.

With the exception of the very first race of the qualifying series Marit Bouwmeester (NED), currently seventh overall, is achieving consistent top 10 results and will be trying to close the twelve point gap between her and Multala in first place during tomorrow's gold fleet races. Josefin Olsson (SWE) who had been working her way up in the results capsized on the last downwind of the second race, losing two points. Righting her boat fast enough meant she still finished eighth in the blue fleet.

In the strong winds Irish Annalise Murphy is showing her strength and repeats her scores from yesterday with a first and second place. Improving twelve places she is now 15th overall due to a rather disastrous first day of racing where she was 65th and 33rd. Similarly the conditions seem to suit Paige Railey (USA) who is only two places and one point behind Murphy with much more stable top 10 results over the last two days.

In the U21 ranking another American is pushing ahead. Erika Reineke overtook Marie Bolou (FRA) who had been leading throughout the first two days. In third place is Michelle Broekhuizen (NED), who will be racing in gold fleet tomorrow along with the current top 10 of the U21 competitors.
