2021 Star South American Championship at Yacht Club de Ilhabela - Day 3

by ISCYRA 14 Nov 2021 20:59 PST November 12-15, 2021

The final battle for the Star South American Championship is set for the last day of racing, tomorrow, Monday (15), in Ilhabela, Brazil. The world champion Jorge Zarif and the pro Arthur Lopes got back in the game today and will go on the water tomorrow with just one point behind the multi-Olympic gold medalist Robert Scheidt and Ubiratan Matos.

The discard coming in place today, put Zarif and Lopes back in the games. The boat had problems the day before, leaving the two more distant from the leaders. In the races of the day, they won one and came second in the other. The races were practically a match race against Robert Scheidt and Ubiratan Matos, who had the same result as their opponents.

"Strong wind, the east wind came in very strong. We had two very competitive races. Jorginho and Arthur ended up winning the first race, and we won the second. Very tight races, very little margin between boats. Everything remains for tomorrow, the final day of the championship, with the two last races that promise to be interesting", analyzed Robert Scheidt.

This Sunday's races were held at Ponta das Canas with an average of 20 knots of wind due to the entry of a front from the northern coast of São Paulo.

"Another day of very strong winds here in Ilhabela. Very tight races, lots of people appearing in the headwind. We had a good performance, we got a first and a second. We are back in the fight for the Championship", highlighted Jorge Zarif.

Zarif was world champion in 2018 in the United States with crew Guilherme de Almeida. In the same year, the athlete from São Paulo won the SSL Gold Cup Finals, in the Bahamas, with Pedro Trouche. Robert Scheidt, on the other hand, has three gold medals in his resume in the category. Besides the two Olympic medals, he won the 2007, 2011, and 2012 World Championships.

The final races are scheduled for 1 pm on the Brazilian national holiday of November 15th at the Yacht Club de Ilhabela (YCI).
