At the ISAF Team Racing Worlds, taking place on Schull Harbour, the competition was intense on Friday as teams from Great Britain and United States fought for the top five places to make the cut for the quarter finals.

On this third day of round robin racing the joint leaders overnight, West Kirby Hawks (GBR1) and Team Extreme (USA1) went head to head in the first race of the day. After a titanic struggle, the Hawks took the spoils, putting down an early marker to their chief rivalsin the Championship to date. A great days racing for the Hawks was only spolit by a defeat in their seventh race of the day, to Woonsocket Rockets (USA2), who pipped them with a 2,3,4 combination. Team Extreme’s only hiccup of the day was a loss to West Kirby Hawks and they completed the rest of the day’s racing with a clean sheet achieving 90.91% success to date with 30 wins from 33 races to leave them on exactly the same percentage as West Kirby Hawks at the top.

The British Universities Sailing Association (BUSA) team, while suffering two losses, still maintained a top five place. The Woonsocket Rockets completed the day with ten wins from eleven races, losing only to Team Extreme and made the cut to the quarter finals also. Wessex Exempt (GBR 2) finally squeezed into the fifth spot leaving Royal St George Gladiators (IRL 1) and the Australians disappointed in their wake after three days of racing.

In the Youth Worlds the battle at the top continued between the Spanish team from Barcelona and host club, Schull Community College, with Schull finally taking top spot. The four teams to contest the final stages of the competition on Saturday morning are: Schull Community College, the Spanish team, West Kirby Youth (GBR1) and Sevenoaks (GBR 2).

The top three teams from the Youth Finals then join the five qualifiers from the Open section in the Open quarter finals which will be sailed in round robin format on Saturday afternoon with the Open World semi-finals and final taking place on Sunday morning.
